Q: Usage of term "Minecraft"

Good morning. Is it legal to use term "Minecraft" in notebook title description (I don't print this word in notebook cover)? I have made a research and I couldn't find any restrictions in usage of that term in notebooks.

A: Well the term "Minecraft" is a trademark in many countries and also a copyright is in question. However I am not really sure if I understand your question correctly. What exact type of usage it would be? Will you sell something with using this? I am not able to advice further without more details.

You can also seek intellectual property expert in your country if you need more advice on a local level.
