When it comes to designing your own T-shirts, one of the concerns that you might have is how to protect your custom T-shirt designs.
How to Protect Your Custom T-Shirt Design Print?
For every customer that buys one of your designs, there might be dozens of unscrupulous sellers out there that want to copy what you are doing. However, there are some ways that you can combat the theft of your designs. Here are three tips for you to follow.
Be the First to Market
One of the best ways to make sure that you give yourself the best chance possible of not having a design stolen is to be the first to market with that design. That means not releasing the design early, but instead, releasing it only when you are able to actually sell the product. In this way, anyone who’s copying you will already be behind.
Maintain Your Design Securely
You also should keep your design somewhere secure where there is an upload date . This will help you prove that you created this design and had it before anyone else. Storing files on the cloud is a great way to do this as long as you store them securely.
Register a Copyright
You can also register a copyright of your design with the United States copyright office. This is a really great solution if you get involved in a legal battle, but it does cost money to register your copyright so it will not be appealing to everyone.
Hire a Lawyer
If all else fails, then hire a lawyer and try to get the products that are copycats of your own products taken down. If the person selling there was in the United States, this is a lot easier than it is if they are in some other country.
