I am assuming you're in the U.S. so use the U.S. government copyright! There are too many companies out there that will rip you off saying they will copyright it for you and then copyright it for themselves and steal your work so don't bother checking anything else until you have proof from the government that it's completed!


This link will answer all the important 'how to's' and 'what to's'. Be sure and read each internal link!

You may need a patent too because it's a game? I don't know so be sure to find out after/at the same time as copy writing. Call the contact number at that link if you have any questions after reviewing it.

After all of that is done then start contacting the main game companies to sell your idea ;-)

How does one go about getting a copyright on a t-shirt design? Is it necessary?

It is if you want to save it as your own.

Some have used the "Poor Mans Copyright" which means you put all the original information in an envelope and mail it to yourself. Then, simply do not open it...ever. But for some more expensive but safer ways, you can find good patents and copyright information on where you can click on copyright and get this link:


Hope that helps.
