    Is the name of a sitcom copy right protected for a domain name?

    I want to start a new forum about one of my favorite sitcoms. Can I use its name a domain or is that copyright protected? For example seinfeldfans.com or seinfeldforums.com etc. Does anyone know if that is allowed, or it is considered as a copyright infringement? Thanks.
