Copyright questions.

I have an original image that I want to have copyrighted for possible future business usage.

What kind of money am I looking at?
How time consuming is the process going to be?
Do I need to use a lawyer, and are there any recommendations?


From what I have heard, Copyrights are much quicker and cheaper than Patents.

It is not a photo. It is a logo. More or less based off the squirrel in my avitar but with changes. I have been thinking about manufacturing some items and this will be the company logo.

Think you are thinking about a trademark. No idea how those go.

Copy right, your good although there are advanages to regstering.
Trademark a a differnt animal, and it does sound like a trademak issue. Again, regstration will be a good idea.

No wories, I will list you as a partner. Then when this all fails, you can help pay the creditors with me. BTW How much is your house worth?


Actually I did some changes that should cancel any possible copyright infringment. It is similar but unique.


Thanks Paladin!
