OK, so this is still about a game... only a web-based browser game, in this case NationStates, a political/social role-playing game that's text/image-based, interactive fiction.
It's a political/social satire, basically.
I'm creating fictional magazines for a fictional nation, and they're being hosted on a flipbook site. My question relates to titles and same names.
I obviously can't call my fictional newspaper relating to the nation The Times or my fictional car magazine Auto Trader, as they're trademarked - I checked on ipo.gov.uk, but if I was to call them The Anytown Express The Times or The Anytown Express Auto Trader (with different logos than the original to avoid copyright infringement, as well), would that fall under copyright infringement / trademark infringement, and is adding an affix sufficient enough to differentiate themselves?
I don't actually have anything yet on the site about my fictional nation's media... so am OK for now, but when I actually do, what's the right way to go about it?
Since this game is a parody/satire/social commentary, what's the right way to do a parody successfully?
All help is gratefully appreciated.
