Im just wondering what are the copyrights on album titles? Can anyone use the same name for their albums?

Could I release an album called Led Zeppelin IV?

Sort of an example:

Not like that, because Led Zeppelin is the name of a band.
But bands name themselves after albums or songs, so in a way yes. You just cant steal the bands name.

first off, things like band names aren't copyrighted, they're trademarked (there's a pretty big difference) with something like Led Zeppelin IV yeah you would probably get in trouble because it uses the band name, if you made an album called Physical Graffiti however you might be able to get away with that, because album and song titles typically are not trademarked.
