I was trying to upload a file and repeatedly got the following error message:

Skyscrapers.kml
Error: Invalid characters found in your file name.

In fact, the invalid character was in my "Title of file" ("World's Tallest Skyscrapers"). But since it is not obvious that the "title of file" will be used as a filename, the error message (which repeats the filename and not its "title") is rather misleading.

I dont see why that is causing any problems, make sure you dont use any special characters in your file name - that could be the problem, the name of your KMZ has nothing to do with it :)
