I have an idea for a T-shirt design. It involves artwork plus captioning. Do I have to patent the artwork and the captioning separately? How does one afford such patents?


Patents cover inventions. Neither an artwork nor captioning are inventions, and so would not eligible for a patent. You may be thinking of copyright, which covers creative works. If so, that's off topic here, so your question would be better asked thataway.

  • Bonus: (Non registered) Copyright doesn't cost money. – DonQuiKong Feb 1 '18 at 7:19
