You can't copyright a name, by the way, you can trademark one but that's nothing like a copyright.

Trademarking it is just about the same as copyrighting it, just look at what Cisco did with the Iphone, they sued apple over the rights to the name.

I would say as long as it is not a big company and your products differ you are fine, but don't go and try to start up a grocery store named Microsoft.
