You could try doing it yourself by visiting the US Copyright office website. U.S. Copyright OfficeI am paying my attorney $300 for each design that I have on my T-shirts for copyrighting. Is there a cheaper way to go?
Well in that case, have any designs I can browse?Why waste your money, if someone steals your design it would cost a fortune to sue them, then your return is less that what you spent in court in most cases. Be the first one out there and sell it, then move on. My opinion, John
That was my attempt at dry humor, but a lot of truth in it. You can send a Cease and Desist letter and see what they say or do.Well in that case, have any designs I can browse?
This is true at least for clipart and so i don't see why you can't do it for t-shirt designs.Anyway, rather than spend $200-300 per design, you just create a 'book' containing ALL of your designs and copyright the book. That supposedly covers all designs/illustrations under one umbrella, giving you rights to reproduce them however you see fit...like on a t-shirt.
Seems to make sense, but I'm not a lawyer and I haven't tried it...anyone know if this might work?
