Rename the title.

Period.

I wonder about the legal aspects also.

Someone; some corporation; owns all rights.

Be careful.

Mike, I appreciate your concern. Before getting into writing Sherlock Holmes based books, I carefully researched the legal aspects, and the consensus of opinion at this time is, the [u]characters[/u] are in the public domain. This is my most recent book:

[b]Jack The Ripper versus Sherlock Holmes
http://amazon.com/dp/B008BX0C2Y[/b]

I have written and published a total OF FOUR EBOOKS ON SHERLOCK HOLMES, and so far no problems yet. Perhaps you might like to read one?
