    If I titled a psychological short story about a ridiculously useless senate: "The Brave New Republic Utopia of 19.84 Worlds"

    would I get in trouble? or do you think it wouldn't be taken seriousl

    People would get the joke probably, also all those text are no longer under copyright so you can plagiarize them to your heart's content.

    Copyright runs from fifty to one hunmdred years after the author's death.
    Huxley died in 1963.

    According to wikipedia "Nineteen Eighty-Four will enter the US public domain in 2044, [15] and in the European Union until 2020, although it is in the public domain in Canada,[16] Russia,[17] and Australia.[18]"

    You are probably safe with Sir Thomas Moore's Utopia. I think he has been dead three or four centuries.


    Using the the titles in your title would not be any kind of copyright infringement anyway.
