We're starting up a new website. We already have the domain registered and we are going to begin development ASAP. We are going to hire someone to put together a logo for us as well as a front end design, but all backend development is being done by me.
What are the steps I need to take at this moment to protect the company. Things like trademarks, copyrights, everything. Is there anything special I need to do when I pay someone to do the design work for me so he/she doesn't steal anything?
I have never done anything like this before so I'm completely in the dark here...=/
Thanks ahead of time guys.
