By the way, I have been speaking to a team of Copyright Lawyers, and they say this:

Copyright all schematics.

Do your own digital plug in and copyright the math.

Take the straight sound and the effected sound and difference them so you have a recording of just the difference, showing what your device does to change the sound. Take that and copyright it.

Describe what your device does with relation to the circuit and copyright that.

Trademark all names and nik names.

Copyright panel layouts, knob looks, fonts, etc.

The important part of this is to time date anything and everything you can. When someone comes out with a plug in and admits that they used your unit to do the plug in, you will need to show that you have lost sales from the sale of the plug in, which is a copy of your signature sound. If you can show that, you will have a case.
