... and maybe not even then, since titles and trademarks cover different areas, and IP law involving the US government is different in many ways.

haikujaguar had a problem with amazon recently;
the title of a book coincidentally contained a trademark,
so amazon wouldn't sell it,
even though it was ~not~ a trademark infringement.

So I'm just sayin' if authors avoid putting trademarks in titles,
amazon won't have an issue, and the authors won't have a problem.

"An Army of One" has prior-work... it was used on the poster for "The Outlaw Josey Wales". Rush Limbaugh has also used it as part of a book title (2011) and it was also the name of a 1993 Dolph Lundgren B-movie.

I don't think there's going to be much of a problem.

The US government is prohibited from owning patents or copyrights; don't know what the law is on trademarks. And you can't copyright a title in any case.

Thank you!

I appreciate those tips. A quick search showed that that "An Army of One" is in widespread use as a title, so I'm considering a subtitle such as "An Army of One: The Autistic Secession in Space."

Yes...

Thanks for pointing this out. I discovered that "An Army of One" is in widespread use as a title, so I'm considering a subtitle such as "An Army of One: The Autistic Secession in Space."
