Q. I made a mouse pad with the 52 week challenge on it. Do I need to copyright or patent it?
A: It depends: It can be both.

A copyright protects original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. This includes creative works like art, literature, and graphic designs. So for the design of the mousepad you may be able to file a copyright for those specific creative elements if the design on your mouse pad involves creative or artistic elements, such as unique graphics, illustrations, or text related to the 52-week challenge.

A patent protects inventions, processes, and certain types of designs. Utility patents cover new and useful inventions, while design patents protect the ornamental design of a functional item. If your mouse pad includes a unique and novel functional feature or design that serves a specific purpose (beyond mere aesthetics), you might consider exploring the possibility of a design patent.

Note copyrights and patents serve different purposes and that you automatically have a copyright upon creation. Registration with the U.S. Copyright Office provides additional benefits, such as the ability to sue for statutory damages not the copyright. Also note that it is significantly cheaper than a patent. Please also note this is not legal advice and only a high level overview. You should consult with a licensed attorney about your specific circumstances. If you would like I would be happy to help. Best of Luck. JJTP
