The first step in protecting your art design or pattern is to protect it through a copyright or trademark. Visit www.copyrightservice.co.uk for complete details. Next, visit a Solicitor and have them draft up a license agreement that you can use with third parties. Another option is to consider a Creative Commons license. The aim of Creative Commons is to enable copyright holders to grant some of their rights to the public while retaining others through a variety of licensing and contract schemes including dedication to the public domain or open content licensing terms.
