The only way to officially register a trademark is to apply through the US Trademark office and pay the application fee.Is there any other way to either trademark it for dirt cheap or protect it until I can afford to do so
First you need to understand how copyrights and trademarks work (a copyright probably won't protect the word okobooti and unless you establish okobooti as a "brand", you'll have a hard time registering it as a trademark).Cassidy said:I live in a small town and the slogan I want to use is a branch off of our town name. Okoboji----Okobooti. I think it will be very popular as someone else already has--"univeristy of okoboji" Even though there is no UofO here. It ballooned and locals tried to steal it. I'm real nervous about just putting it out there without it being protected. Where do I get a copyright from?
That method offers ZERO copyright protection.BelHeirClothing said:a lamen way of doing this is write you ideas down on a paper, put that paper in an envelope with the designs and drawings and mail it to yourself... but dont open it... thats the "poor man" ways of protecting his ideas...
