A: Probably not

If it is already used by somebody else or it is very close to somebody's else slogan you should stay away from it.

A: Most likely not, but it depends on how you plan to use the mark. Trademark infringement is a highly fact-intensive inquiry covering a lot of factors:

(1) strength of the marks, (2) relatedness of the goods, (3) similarity of the marks, (4) evidence of actual confusion, (5) marketing channels, (6) degree of consumer care, (7) defendant's intent in selecting the mark, and (8) likelihood of expansion of the product lines.
