@happenclothing Do not spend any money on legal until you have something worth protecting (money wise) and also have the money to hire an attorney for a drawn out legal fight. Also, everything you design is automatically protected under IP (Intellectual Property Law).

Also, like others have said, you should set up the business correctly upfront (LLC, C Corp., S Corp.) because you might have to file all this back paperwork, taxes and filings for dates you've been in business. Whether you wait or not, keep good records.

Basically, I want to correct this statement from above...

"I have seen to many people get their logos copied or yet alone stolen by another company.
"

Either they had nothing to protect ("fair use") or they couldn't afford a lawyer.

Anywhere here's a decent link (I didn't real all of it..)

Kite Life i really do hope you're trolling. If you're not I advise you to go back to the drawing board, these designs are horrible.

@rawtee I totally agree with @casein_point
Only other thing I would add is edit the shop page and take out the big cartel branding on your page. I am more familiar with them than you, and you dont want somebodys attention to be taken away. Especially at the store front.

You may want to read up on some Photoshop tutorials and the like, then retry making designs.

These are bad.

I like that hoodie. Not a big fan of patterns, but it's a cool way of using them.

Not necessarily on the stolen statement.
I actually said that because a incident recently happen where I had to inform a another company local to me that someone had taken their TM logo and just flat out copied it.

http://theartisticreation.com/2013/01/fakes-and-phonies/

It was actually a member who posted in here who tried to steal the logo and use it as a design.

Always protect your neck
