I left the boards not too long ago, but then some correspondence on the board through the Private Messages picked up and I don't want to lose my account. So, you may see me posting occassionally. Anyways, my main question is this: I have an fragrance note list and a name for a fragrance that I am going to try to develop. What can I copyright, and how? In terms of what I can and can't copyright, can I copyright the name and imagery of the cologne? Can I copyright the note formula? And what is the easiest way to copyright the things that I can copyright regarding my cologne?

Thanks for the response. What's that one easy way of copyriting something (in this case the name of the cologne and the shape of the bottle), isn't it something like sending yourself the information in an envelope or something like that?
you'd need to apply for a trademark... well... you should really go talk to the gvt. office responsible for this in your area because the procedures differ from area to area, but in your case you definatley would need to apply for a trademark to protect your name, you cant just do the letter thing, thats more like copyrighting a book...
Here's the US website for further information. They have a search feature on there, too.
Thanks for the helpful responses!
Why not ask Alyala for some advice as she's a very sucessful perfumer.
