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?

1 Answer 1


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.
