Legally, you don't have to have it trademarked. It's easier to fight if you have it trademarked etc, but copyright laws and fair business practices are very linient when it comes to the web.

Once you publish something, it becomes your copyright (or that of the place it was published - depending on TOS/AUP)

Parody sites are on a whole different side of the law, but if you squat on a domain, then use their popularity to enhance your own in the same industry (deception/trickery), it's a slam dunk case in court.
