You can't copyright a product.

When you speak of registering, do you mean filing a patent or a trademakr application.

Since you seem to be implying a patent, be aware that if you are not a US resident, you can only apply for a patent in the USA once you have the patent in your country of residence, and there are rules that apply whereas you have to file in the USA within a certain time after getting the patent in your home country.

There's also a rule regarding publically unveiling the product in your home country before applying for the patent in the USA.

Or something like that. IANAL YMMV etc etc.

OK. If you're resident in the USA it's a LOT easier for you.

But you have to really know what you're doing to do it yourself, as doing so, you might end up with a very weak patent that is easily circumvented.

If it's worth patenting, it's worth paying for it to be done properly.

I know is very difficut, but this idea is very easy to make I just made two or three and write the rest as colors and textures, I have others that just are going to stay in my books for the moment.

Other thing to have in mind is never put any idea or design in your computer, to many hackers and download programs etc, etc, only in case.:)

Use a thumb drive ... This not only applies to your situation but I have several thumbdrives with lists of my names at various registrars etc. Just in case all 3 internal hard drives and my 2 external ones suddenly decide to die at the same time.

They are very cheap here in Singapore .. About $13 USD per GB so well worth it as an extra layer of backup.
