Can you copyright a mountain name?
Can a place name, such as a mountain name range name be copyrighted? It seems so in the UK where the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) claims copyright on the name 'Glencoe' through their ownership of the Glen. The NTS is seeking to ban unauthorised use of the name by third parties, see https://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item/71219/nts_threaten_outdoor_firm_over_glencoe_name_copyright

Perhaps Mountain Views should trademark all its mountain names before someone else does and charges us for using them!

On a similar thread, the National Trust wants to charge photographers up to 400 if they commercially benefit from taking a photo or video view of NT lands in Snowdonia. https://tohatchacrow.blogspot.ie/2017/08/national-trust-targets-photographers.html?m=1
