What are the differences between patents, industrial designs, trademarks, and copyrights?

The terms such as patents, industrial designs, trademarks, and copyrights are often confusing for a lot of business owners, and they don’t know what types of rights they should apply.

  • Trademarks
  • Trademark is a mark that makes products and services different from one provider to others. It identifies the source of the product. It is the same to some extent to the logo, brand name, and slogan. Meanwhile, the moving images, packages, or in fact sounds can be trademarks of a company.

    The most necessary thing to protect your trademark is that it should be highly distinctive. So, consumers can easily rely on the trademark that helps people in distinguishing the products and services of one provider from others. Getting trademark rights is necessary for business owners for protecting the brand and its value.

IPExcel will guide you in what factors does the uspto consider when deciding whether to grant a patent application.

  • Patents
  • Patents are the right that helps you prevent your invention. One can apply for a patent for electronics, pharmaceuticals, chemical composition, and more. To get the patent rights, your invention should be based on fully new ideas.

    Once innovators get the patent rights, they can prevent their innovation from getting misused. A patent is necessary from a commercial perspective as well. To get a patent from your targeted country, you need to file your application by following the respective rules and regulations of any country.

  • Copyright
  • Copyright mainly protects that original creation, whether you have dramatic, literary, artworks, or music. Whether you have written a novel, developed software, captured photographs, paintings, songs, or sculptures, you can apply for Copyright to protect your invention. Besides, Copyright also offers complete protection for broadcasts, recordings, published editions, typography, and many more.

  • Industrial Design
  • As far as industrial design is concerned, it is another type of intellectual property that gives you complete protection from different visual features such as pattern, shape, ornament, or configuration.
