patent does not apply but a copyright would protect a creative & original artwork, design or graphic....but words/slogans are copyrightable
if you are just think about putting a clever/funny slogan etc on a t-shirt there is really no protection for that
also, a pure "idea" is not protectable
So give me some examples other than logo's or company names (on t-shirts) that could be copyrighted
