- Do I need to register my work to make sure it is copyrighted?
- What about Trademarks and Intellectual Property?
In this blog post I will clear up these questions and more, so that you’ll have a clear idea of what is ok (and what is not ok) when it comes to creating designs for T-Shirts, and selling them online.
