Need to Copyright a Game, Patent a Game or Trademark a Game? Below are links that will help you to get started! Listed alphabetically for your convenience.  If your country is not listed and would like to have it listed, please send us the information so that we may help others to protect their game.

Many people are confused on the subject of Trademark and use (TM) or (R) incorrectly with their brand or logo. When you use your trademark, logo or brand you can claim rights to it by using the (TM) (trademark) or (SM) (service mark) designation to alert the world to your claim of ownership of the brand. You may do so when you have filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). However, you may only use the federal registration symbol (R) after the USPTO actually registers a mark, and not while an application is pending.

For more details, these links are provided for your convenience rather than paying an attorney, and to keep your cost to a minimum. Keep in mind that a Patent usually does not apply to a board game, however read the details carefully to see if it does apply to you!
