:!: Bad English Warning! :!:

The reason why I'm worrying about it is copyright infringement proplem.

what if someone copies my design in illegal way. Can I protect my copyright then without getting a patent?

Or, is it an idle fear? :D

/Sorry for all of you. I missed to make public that my mean is 'in puzzles I invented'

Without that word this post is very weird. I made a confusion to most of you. I'm sorry once more.

If I take picture of my puzzle's structure and post this, someone copies my design in illegal way. This post is questioning about it.

If I were you, I wouldn't worry about it. Introducing a new puzzle design into the world is great, don't ruin the fun by trying to squeeze money out of it.

Thankfully for you not everyone feels that way or you would have zero puzzles in your collection.

what are you assembling? if it is something like a 3x3x3 why worry? If it is something you might want to MP, then don't post it until you have protection. If not, you never know what nasty things might develop.

Perhaps a better question is if you can protect your design even *with* a patent? Unfortunately it seems there is little protection these days for designers, although I wish that would change.

Most of us choose to share anyway,

Thank you. Now I decided to do like that:

1. Design the puzzles which is so easy to assemble that doesn't needs assembling tutorial.

2. Have no worry!
