@nikacomics I forget sometimes too. Basicly trademark is for a new invention or object that you don't want copied and copyright's for comics, tv cartoons, or some other mostly digital works.
@Savannah I've actually heard of the poor man's way of doing it from people too Lol. But I think they just told me to email it to myself not mail a hard copy. It's probably both tho.
@ametueraspirant Never did any research on that so I thought it was only for photos. But I'll look into it now that you mention it
@gateofselidor Ughh, you're right. Lawyer'ing up sounds expensive and stressful. And then it depends on how similar my work is to theirs in order for the lawyer up to even work. If I decide not to copyright, it sounds like keeping all of my original files with the initial dates on them will suffice ... for now.
Thank You ALL for your input!
