There are quite a number of issues in your question, I will answer several based upon the information you provided:
I am not sure what "....." may represent. If this is a name or region, you are not necessarily afforded much protection.
WA state TM registration is a $65 filing fee and the federal TM registration is $275-$325/class filing fee. It is strongly advised to have an attorney handle a federal trademark registration.
WA registration is not examined, outside of doing a "knockout"...
There isn't an easy answer with the facts that your provided. A common law or state trademark wouldn't [necessarily] extend into Washington. However, a federally registered trademark would create an issue for you if, and only if, your mark is likely to cause consumer confusion with the trademark holder. A trademark attorney could evaluate this and provide an solid opinion without spending a great deal of time or money.
Under some circumstances, you are permitted to use a trademark in a domain name to refer to that trademark's good. This is called fair use.
The 9th circuit (which includes Washington State) looks at the following three factors when determining a nominative fair use defense: 1)the product was readily identifiable without the use of the mark, 2) the mark was used more than necessary, or 3) a one claiming fair use falsely suggested a sponsorship or endorsement by the trademark holder.
You should be fine. It is possible, yet extremely unlikely, that one could patent a recipe, or the final product. This might be slightly less unlikely in molecular gastronomy (think: El Bulli).
One could own the copyright on the written words of the recipe and picture of the final product but this will not preclude you from making and selling the useful product.
For additional answers, please provide said baked good to my office.
Trademark protection of the space needle is very interesting and somewhat unique. Ordinarily, one perspective of a building may be registered as a federal trademark. However, what makes the space needle unique is that it looks the same from all angles. Therefore, the space needle is protected under federal trademark law no matter what side is depicted.
However, using a city skyline as a whole, is not necessarily illegal in trademark or copyright law. In this regard, if the space needle is not...
If you are the photographer, you own the copyright on the photo. You can send a DMCA takedown request to the ISP of the website. This is the cheapest and easiest option.
You (or a lawyer) can also send a cease and desist letter directly to the website owner. If the copyright is timely registered with the Library of Congress (within 90 days of publishing), you can potentially receive statutory damages and legal fees in a copyright infringement case in federal court.
Finally, if there is a...
Yes, this is copyright infringement. Copyright Law gives a "bundle of rights" comprising the following exclusive rights:
To reproduce the work
To make derivative works of the work
To distribute copies of the work to the public (sale, rental, lease, lending)
To perform the work publicly
To display the work publicly
You are violating the copyright holder's rights (Disney). You may also be liable for trademark infringement.
Have you registered for copyright protection with the Library of Congress? If you have, you may be entitled to statutory damages of up to $150,000 per infringement plus attorneys fees and costs. However, if you did not register the copyright before the infringement or within 90 days of publishing, then you would only be entitled to actual damages, which is often difficult is ascertaining prior to lengthy litigation.
The other attorneys have properly mentioned copyright and personality rights (rights of publicity). In Washington, personality rights are codified in RCW 63.60. Fair use is also an area that might factor in, but it does not appear to be relevant here.
However, this should be a moot point because the artist release and/or license agreement often covers these aspects. Also, check with the agreement with the A&R Rep. If this isn't already part of the agreement, then you should consider working...
In somes cases, use of a copyrighted image without permission is protected under fair use.
Fair Use factors:
1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
2)the nature of the copyrighted work;
3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.
