Comparison of Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights.
A patent is a limited duration property right or contract relating to an invention, granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in exchange for public disclosure of the invention.
A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others. A service mark is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than goods. The term “trademark” is often used to refer to both trademarks and service marks. Must all marks be registered? No, but federal registration has several advantages, including a notice to the public of the registrant’s claim of ownership of the mark, a legal presumption of nationwide ownership, and the exclusive right to use the mark on or in connection with the goods or services set forth in the registration.
A copyright protects works of authorship, such as writings, music, and works of art that have been tangibly expressed.
The Patent Division of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) handles patents only, and, is separate from the Trademark Division of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) which handles trademarks only. For more information on patents and trademarks, please see the appropriate pages of this web site.
