You cant copyright common words like "spike", which existed in the english language prior to spike lee's birth, can you?, or "Scrolls", or "Vivid"... i mean, they're just words. Next thing you know, The Beatles are suing everyone for using the world "The" in their title, or imagine their lawyer going over to the African Dung Beetle and handing it a cease and desist letter.
