What's the cheapest, simplest, most effective way to stop somebody else from owning my logo?

I have a logo (image only, no words) that I have ambitions of using as a sort of stamp in a bunch of related online (and not) creative projects. My concern is not about denying use of this image to others (information does want to be free etc). Rather, I don't want someone else to be able to walk in, claim my image as their own and stop me from using it.
Am I being paranoid here or is there some cheap, simple, prudent, effective step (or steps) that I should take to protect myself?
In terms of jurisdiction, I'm thinking the world in general, North America in particular.
