Hi! I'm a graphic designer who lives in Montreal and Im in the process of opening a t-shirt dropshiping business. To start my store will only be for the US market. My first question is concerning the name and the logo I created for my compagny, do I have to trademark them? Also what is best way to protect my t-shirt designs so I dont have copyright problems. Finally, my wholesaler is located in California and Im in Montreal so for taxes how does it work? I've read on forums that US taxes dont apply since I'm in Canada but I'm not sure about this info. If there's anything else you think I should know or do before I open my online store please let me know. Thank you! Greg.
