Copyright relates to a “work” by an author, artist etc. Your website design is subject to copyright. Your website content and your written material such as the book and training course are also subject to copyright. As the author you automatically own the copyright in these works. The titles and domain name are not subject to copyright. In some cases you might be able to apply for a trademark for these as long as they are non descriptive of the goods or services being provided.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
Copyright applies to works, but not to titles or domain names. A title is not a “work”. So whilst your content is subject to copyright domain names and titles are not. They may be trademarked but not where they are descriptive of the service. Developmental Baby Massage describes the product or service and would not be acceptable as a trademark.
