Is there a web site that has a list of items or sayings that people own the rights to?

The reason I'm asking is I had come up with a murder mystery and the saying I want as the title. I just want to make sure no one owns the rights to it. I tried searching Yahoo and can't find nothing.

The saying is "Elementary, My Dear Watson".

No, there's not such site; it's an impossible thing to track.

You'd have to worry more about trademark with that one, not copyright. I wouldn't stress over it yet . . . publishers often change titles.

Thanks.

If I can't use it, I can always change the to "Elementary". :tongue
