Hello all. I have read that Microsoft has copyrighted the word "Wizard." However, a person can use "wizard" in lowercase without infringing upon the copyright law.

What if my developers want to call a piece of software a "wizard," and the title of the dialog box is in title caps? Similarly, what if I need to use the name of the dialog box in a heading where I use title caps? In both cases, we would capitalize the term "wizard." How does this work?
