Default Can I copyright or trademark the school uniform I created?

Can I copyright or trademark or patent the school uniforms (really more of a designer play clothes concept) that I created for our local pre-school?

I did it as a volunteer. There was no contract or other agreement.
But now several people have talked to me about the creative designs and about licensing the rights?

If you are using the name of the school or anything that would identify the school you will need to obtain a license from the school.



I suggest you talk to the school owners and get their response to the idea of school uniforms. They might not allow it at all.

Employees' work product belongs to the employer but volunteers normally get to keep their rights in IP unless they signed something saying otherwise.

All the major nonprofits usually make you sign something, but most small orgs do not.
Based on what I have seen.
