What's the difference between copyright and trademark?

Author: Source: Date:2015/9/10 15:56:16 Click:15 TAGS:

Trademarks are often confused with copyrights, but each protects something very specific. Understanding how they differ will help you make the right filing choice for protecting your valuable property against infringement.

The main difference is that copyrights generally apply to and benefit artistic works. For example, a song on a CD, a painting on canvas, or a book. It gives the creator the right to control any attempt to copy their work.

On the other hand, trademarks are used to protect brand names, slogans and logos for businesses.

Early registration of copyrights and/or trademarks can help you avoid costly disputes over actual rights of ownership, and their affordability makes registering worthwhile.
