      Has to be around 80% your own design. Is that your pic?

    You automatically have copyrights on anything you write, as soon as you write it.

    But if you want to have exclusive rights to that phrase, (where you own that phrase and can stop other people from using it) you'll need to (pay to) register your written work with the Copyright Office and have them assign a registration number to it. 

    If you were going to use the phrase on t-shirts, that might require a trademark, which costs a boatload and requires a lawyer.

    The phrase belongs to PDS, but probably only useful with that pic. Can PDS copyright a pic which is in the public domain?
