Hello everyone, I have a question about patenting my designs. I recently sold a couple of plushies on etsy. The peson that ordered them requested I mail to a company. I researched it online and found its a company that sells handmade crafts. I'm worried that my ideas are going to be duplicated for sale. I dont know much about how to protect my work or where to get started. As of right now I'm not making any sort of constant income off my work, but I am working up to that. I plan on listing much more in the not too distant future and if you have any advice, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you!!!

As long as you can prove that you came up with the idea before them, your idea is copyrighted to you.
