Gah, I just spent a while getting a lot of good copyright-related threads listed and then Firefox lagged on me and I friggin' closed this tab. I'll try to recover what I had...

Bleh, I know I had another one or two. Ah well. I know copyright questions are kind of more general, but they're asked in this forum all the time so I think they should be partially covered in both sections.

Do I have to pay to register a copyright every single one of my designs?
https://www.t-shirtforums.com/general...sion/t310.html

Can I mail myself a copy of my designs to legally protect them?
https://www.t-shirtforums.com/general...sion/t310.html

What's the difference between a copyright, a trademark, and a patent?
https://www.t-shirtforums.com/graphic...elp/t1314.html

If I modify someone else's image or use someone else's image as a reference, is it okay to use?

Red face Re: Frequently Asked Questions in the Graphics and Design Help Forum: New here? Read Me:)

HELP!!! I embroider, but decided to purchase a heat press so I could offer that as well. I have used Easy Prints designs from Transfer Express and loved them for ease and quality, but now have customers coming that either need too few shirts to justify the expense or need their own logo done. I need to be able to put a logo and text easily into a software and print my own transfers. I know all you pros use Corel, Adobe, vector art, etc, but please help one of those that is not an artist and I don't understand layering and color separation, etc!!! I ordered T-Shirt Factory ($30), but it won't run on a 64 bit system. So now I'm even out that $30! Again, I just want simple software where I can manipulate clipart or a jpeg file, put text with it, shape the text, color it and print. Is there anyone out there that can have pity on not only a newbie but an idiot as well for buying this heat press without knowing anything?

Somehow the link (https://www.t-shirtforums.com/tags/best-software/) doesn't work right.
It directs me to the homepage and if I click on a subject or sub-forum I get a 404-mention.
Does anyone know something about this?
