Hello,
I have written 6 different instruction to be placed with a product I have designed. Legal Zoom is in the process of processing my Trade Mark on the Stay Safe Resource unit.
My question is how do I protect the written instructions?

Thank you for your question.

The usual way to protect written materials is to register your copyright on them, which you now do on line, see instructions posted at http://www.copyright.gov/eco/eco-tutorial-standard.pdf

The instructions that you wrote are considered a literary work.

I hope this information is helpful.
