BG218: Trademarks, Copyrights, and Patents – Which Do You Need?



Trademarks, copyrights and patents allow you to give notice to the public, legally force others to cease and desist, and sue for infringement.

In this episode, we decipher the differences between trademarks/service marks, copyrights, and patents. As you are building and creating intellectual property – it is vital to understand how to protect your work when needed.

Key Points Include:

  1. Trademarks are used for business brands that make something (brand names, logos, slogans)
  2. Service marks are used for business brands that do something (brand names, logos, slogans)
  3. Copyrights provide protection for your intellectual property (books, song lyrics, music, computer software)
  4.  Patents grant limited duration property rights relating to the invention and discovery of a new and useful process, machine, manufacture or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof
