I think you mean trademark, not copyright. No it's not a trademark.
"Linux" is a trademark of Linus Torvalds in some places, but Tux

Looks *nothing* like tux *whatsoever* in my book. Your eyes must need
looking at.

This is the original tux --> http://www.isc.tamu.edu/~lewing/linux/

And on his page it says "Permission to use and/or modify this image is
granted provided you acknowledge me lewing at isc.tamu.edu and The GIMP
if someone asks."
