    I'm not too savvy about copyright/trademark law, but there are only 26 letters in the common alphabet. I sure hope that 52 people won't be able to copyright/trademark the upper and lower case letters.
    Of course if the letter is a unique artsist created font, perhaps it could be copyrighted, trademarked as an image but once again, it's a very complicated question.

    If he is saying "Art by Ryan" is his trademark, one can only use a capital R in a circle if the mark is registered with the USPTO. If not, it should be a TM in a circle for an unregistered mark.
    If he hits it big I'd hate to see the TM police go after him.

    Actually in a PM to me clarifying if he could change his member name:


    "Lol, no, really I sign with a lower-case r in a circle that is not meant to be a registered trademark symbol--it's meant much more humbly than that, but that was the closest symbol I could find.

    I just found a better one. Will the board support this:

    Ryan ⓡ

    ?

    thx"

    On a completely unrelated note (I think F minor), I've been collecting sketch trading cards for years and was very happy to add one of Ryan's to my world famous (in my mind only) collection!
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    OK. It's just as a (retired) trademark attorney it kinda set off bells.
    Good luck Ryan!
