if you want a copt right go to goverment listings and down load form and then send logo with a search taht the will charge you . if no one else has it thaey will isue one to you. my sugestion to you is do a international trademark or anyone in another country can getthe same lago you created and get trade mark in their country and still use it. if you are seiourius I advise you get a attorny trust me i lost a lot of $ .learn by someone elses mistake .good luck
and by the way exclent job I dont know how old u are but if you are young you have a gift. rise to the top and go for your calling you are good at what you do

Actually, you can't copyright a logo. You can copyright a drawing, a piece of literature, a web page. But not logos. Logos, as well as mascots, characters, and slogans are used to distinguish the goods or services of one person or company from those of another. Things like that have to be trademarked.

I can copyright my site, and because I live in Canada, it is automatically copyrighted even if I dont have a copyright licence, but my logo on my site can only be trademarked.

I don't know how it works in the U.S, but in Canada I have automatic copyright on things I create. Having a copyright license just makes it easier in court to prove that something is mine. I also haave automatic trademarking, so I can stick the little TM beside my logos and characters and stuff. But having my logo be a registered trademark, I need a trade,ark permit, and I need to submit my logo to the National Archives. Then I get a certificate, and I can put the little R in a circle beside the stuff I registered.

Copyright/trademark laws are pretty standard in most of the World, so this stuff should apply to you even if you do not live in Canada.
