swingbyte writes "Years ago I invented a word "swingbyte" to be my web presence or nom de plume. I now find a startup in USA has started trading under this name. Is my word protected by copyright? Do I have any rights of redress to this issue? Have other slashdotters had similar experiences and what has come out of it? I have many fora posts dating back to 2005 at least demonstrating my use of the word seven years prior to this company."
