hello. the artwork would be copyrighted....but not the name "Fabby" (that could only be protected by a trademark.
the copyright really attaches to the work itself, not the character, but the character would incidentally be protected based on the copyrighted works
registration of the copyright is not required to have rights, but it has legal benefits
so I would have to copyright each drawing?
all 30 of them?
the cost is about $35 per work to copyright....you should proably do the ones that are most representative
protection of the "character" would fall under copyright/trademark
ok so if two ddrawing she is just wearing differnt clothes I should copyright both drawings?
is this something I can do through a stie like legal zoon?
yes, and you can do it yourself directly through www.copyright.gov, but if you are confused/have problems wit hthe application process you might want to use legalzoom etc
thx I will go to the website!
best of luck!
