Selling music via fictional tv groups

In an article relating to "Glee Presents the Warblers," one has text:

That said, Glee has spawned more top 10 albums than any other TV show in history. Four TV series are tied for second place, with five top 10 albums each: Sing Along With Mitch (the tally just counts albums released during the run of the show), The Monkees, American Idol (not counting albums by individual contestants) and Hannah Montana (not counting the movie soundtrack or strictly solo albums by star Miley Cyrus).

Does one need a special trademark category protecting names of "unreal" groups, such as the Monkees?

Also, from the story:

Lemonade Mouth, which played to 13.5 million viewers in its first two airings, joins a long line of Disney Channel movies to spawn hit soundtracks. It follows The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical, Jump In!, Camp Rock and Wizards Of Waverly Place.
