The only surefire way is to trademark it, but then you also need to know what industry you're going to be using it in.

You could also use a new service from Briffa (http://www.briffa.com). You basically send them the drawings etc and sign and date them and they stamp them and store them for safekeeping. Then if anyone tries to copy your work you can prove you had originally designed it.

Really simply by being the owner of the logo/image you own copyright over the image automatically - people cannot legally get away with outright copying of your images, obviously you cannot physically stop them if they want to, but you can bring legal action upon them if you catch them.
