Best Way To Protect Doll House Design?
What should you do? We'd recommend that you start by getting some background on both design patents and copyrights and decide which works best for your doll house and your doll designs. Because of the cost and instant protection, we'd recommend copyright protection. Also keep in mind that if you have publicly disclosed or sold your design, you can no longer seek patent protection. So, you need to make your decision prior to the doll or doll house's public debut. And of course, there's also trademark law to protect the name of your Barbie or Betsy Wetsy (here's the story of that brilliant innovation) We discuss doll trademarks here.
