I need to protect a graphic background

p.1 #1 · I need to protect a graphic background


I'm an event photographer and I have a graphic background I designed that is used at every event I cover. I know other people who do work very similar to what I do and my concern is that they will reproduce this background and use it themselves which would obviously hurt my business because this one background generates 90% of my revenues. I'm not sure the best way to protect this image to keep it from being used. Any help would be appreciated.

I would suggest you see a trademark and copyright attorney.

If you are talking about an original piece of art (a photo backdrop) which you created yourself, it is protected by copyright. If, as your profile indicates, you are in the USA you can register the work with the Library of Congress and gain additional protection.

However you need to be aware that copyright will only protect the actual image you created and not the idea behind it.
