Because of the "New Coke" blunder will "Coke Classic" ever go back to being just plain old "Coke" or is it a copyright thing?

The copywrite is theirs anyway so they can name the soda however they decide. That said "old" Coke before the change to fructose is a different product and the taste is different from corn syrup so to split hairs "old" coke is different than Classic because of the ingredients used. So when one says "old" they mean the real McCoy back when corn was used. New Coke is the second generation Coke using fructose and a change in cola taste to be more like Pepsi. Classic is the same "old" cola but uses fructose so it is a third generation Coke.
Old...Corn/original cola base
New...Fructose and flavor change
Classic...Old cola flavor/fructose
