: : how does copyright apply top the arts and crafts field? if you have a design that you have not seen anywhere should you get it copywritten and if so how do you do this and what is the cost.

Hi trisha

thanks for your help on the copyright and wholesale issue. do you have any of your work copywritten or does anyone else out there? i do have another question if you know? i do wire art and produce multiple works of different types of wire gauges and colors and different decorative accents on the pieces to make them unique. that is where i am confused. Do you copyright the actual base design? or do you need to send in one for each different piece of work? in the case of song writting, obviousely you would copyright each song, but in an artists case, how do you copyright each unique addition to one original design?

thanks for any help you can give.
