I have recently been employed to create a company logo for a restaurant opening in west virginia. I created 15 logos for the owner to choose from, and he choose one. I sent him all .jpegs to his email with "SAMPLE" written across them, but stupidly I gave him the copies of the logos on printed paper as well (without sample written on them). At this point now, he is backing out because he doesn't want to pay the $300 I charged for the designs. I know I made several mistakes at this point- I should have made a contract, I should have asked for money up front, etc. etc. But now, at this point- how should I fix my mistakes. I have a pretty good feeling he will copy them, and make one of them his logo, and I do not want to get screwed. It did take a lot of time and effort to create them. All jokes aside, can I go and copyright the logos, even though I don't own the company name, therefore being able to sue if it comes down to it? If so, how do I go about that? Generally speaking, how much does that cost? I did some reading online, but its hard to find any information based on the current circumstances. I appreciate any and all help.
