Product Questions & Answers

On  June 15, 2013Christina's Cafe of Creations (TpT Seller) asked:
Your videos are great and very helpful. For some reason, this video cut off at 18:57 and I wasn't able to see how to finish whatever you intended to the cloud picture game board, and how to format the document as PDF (which I think you mentioned earlier in the video to make sure to do, but I think you forgot to say how to do that). Have you gotten any other similar feedback with such issues? Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 15, 2013Teacher Tam answered:
I am so sorry about that. No, I have not heard of anyone having trouble. I would try 2 things: 1) Redownload the video and see if that fixes the problem. 2). If that doesn't work, please contact TPT customer service. They are waaay more tech savvy than I am! Thank you so much for your purchase. Best of luck here on TPT!
On  November 2, 2012Gretchen Bergen (TpT Seller) asked:
Thanks for providing hints on how to get started in TpT! I have not found much info re: protecting products that are created and uploaded. Do you trademark your lessons? As some teachers have 100s of items in their "stores" I'm wondering if they've trademarked each individual lesson. That seems like a huge undertaking!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 2, 2012Teacher Tam answered:
I never gave it much thought until the last year. I now add my info on the cover page and my name and year to every individual page. Believe me, although it takes some time, it is a necessity to protect yourself and your products---and all of your hard work!

Thanks for providing hints on how to get started in TpT! I have not found much info re: protecting products that are created and uploaded. Do you trademark your lessons? As some teachers have 100s of items in their "stores" I'm wondering if they've trademarked each individual lesson. That seems like a huge undertaking!
