11  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re:design patent? on: April 22, 2004 05:33:57 PM
I am far from being an expert but the little research I've done on the patent/copyright/trademark world seems to imply that for us crafty types copyrights are more appropriate. Patents are for inventions or processes, not designs. Although, if you have invented a useful and functional thing or a process for making such a thing maybe you do need a patent! The whole she-bang is spelled out here: US copyright office http://www.copyright.gov and US Patent & Trademark office http://www.uspto.gov Hope this helps!
