Trademark Crossfit clothing t shirts

Silly question? With the slogans on the T shirts people come up with do they trade mark them or can everyone use them? I have a friend who has a clothing line and I came up with a good saying. Once we print them up can anyone copy them? What is your thoughts? Thank you in advance.

Cheers
Vic

You can try and Trademark your saying, so long as it's your work and related to your consumer business and/or product. A trademark is to protect a brand name primarily.

You can copyright it as your work. The problem with most of the sayings out there, is that they're public domain, so they're not available to be copyrighted.

If you have any other questions, you can PM me, I'm a Trademark attorney in AZ.
