You can reduce the chances of your design being used by others by placing a copyright notice and date on your drawings, reports etc.Your work is protected without it, but a court could find its use to be persuasive evidence that you intended not to give away copyright's in the design. A work must be registered with the US Copyright Office BEFORE a lawsuit for infringement of it is filed, and preinfringement registration opens the door to far greater damages.
