View Full Version : copyright for freebees question
07-05-2006, 02:34 PM
Iíve been designing elements and papers for the last few months and Iíd just love to give some of them out as freebees so I could get some feedback, but eventually Iíd like to become a real designer and I donít understand how copyrighting works. It looks like even the freebees are copyrighted (the ones Iíve looked at).
Do you have to register with a copyrighting agency or have a business license?
Any input would be helpful!

if you made it, you hold the copyright. period.

Kimberly is correct, however...
There's a long list of copyright info, some quite technical. Jen Strange has done a great job of explaining all of this on her blog, and you could also check out the extension blog about Digital Piracy.
Good for you for thinking about giving it a go and also for looking ahead to the future! Good luck! If I get a chance later, I'll try to post direct links to both of those blogs I mentioned--no time right at this moment. :regular_s Hope that helps!

Can't wait to see what you come up with! And I would also strongly recommend Jen Strange's blog(s), she makes copyright, pirating and all that stuff very understandable, even for me (which is quite a thing! LOL)
