Howdy all,

Well, I plan to do my homework and do my reading but I need to find out first of all if launching a shirt line with a unique slogan makes it subject to predators. Do I have to register it, or trademark or whatever the name is???

Thanks!

Welcome!

Yep, kind of like t-shirt school. Get your notebook ready, some paper, and get your pencils sharpened! Be ready to learn, but also be prepared when it's your turn to teach!

But, don't worry...we get our fair amount of free time and recess, too!

As for your trademark issue, slogans are very difficult and almost impossible to trademark. Trademark your name, copyright your designs. Use your slogan with your trademark and someday you may be able to trademark the slogan.

Does using a slogan make it subject to predators? Not anymore than it would have been without a slogan!

"Trademark your name, copyright your designs."

Thanks for lesson #1. Now I have narrowed it down to the above, whatever that means (lesson #2). ;)

I already got my shirts out, so it's a matter of marketing them (lesson #3)...
