Skating for Dummies. I don't think they can stop you from using the "for
Dummies" on your page.

Their book is "Figure Skating for Dummies" because they copyrighted the
phrase "For Dummies" as the name of their product line of books (as
opposed to just a title for one book). You can't copyright the title of
one literary work, but you can copyright the title or part of a title that
is part of a line of nonfiction books and/or a product line. (They even
sell games under the "For Dummies" name.)
This is why other copycat publishers have copyrighted other
similar-but-different names such as "The Complete Idiot's Guide" and so
on. They are not permitted to use "For Dummies," so they use something
similar to put out the same kind of book.
