Trademark Part II

It's official! "The Rots" is a certified registered trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. So now, every time I use the name, I can put a registered trademark symbol after it:

The Rots®

Pretty cool, huh?

And hopefully, that might deter some evildoer who wants to steal the name for their own evildoer purposes.

Copyright stuff

Well, I just found out yesterday that the check I sent last December 3rd to the Copyright Office, along with a stack of greeting cards published in 2006, has finally been cashed. I hope that means the copyrights aren't far behind. I apologize for the wait, and hopefully those cards will be up for sale soon.

I'm also working on a complete overhaul of the merchandise available on CafePress, so here's your last chance to get the products and characters as they are currently available. I have many exciting new images which will replace the products currently listed, and I will be adding several new product choices. I'll also be working on a quarterly newsletter with Rotty news and info on the latest designs and products, and I'll post newsletter sign-up information here as soon as it becomes available.
