How is trademark protection different from copyright and patent protection?

As earlier discussed, a trademark is any word, symbol, device, logo or slogan that identifies and distinguishes one product or service from another.

A copyright is a bundle of rights granted to authors of creative works such as books, websites, computer software, music, architecture, paintings and many other creative works. A copyright owner has the exclusive right to copy and sell the work and additionally has the right to perform it and make variations on it.

A patent is a right provided by the government that allows inventors to prevent another from making, selling, or using another invention that is similar in nature. Patents may be used to protect inventions, machines, devices, processes and many other things. Registering A Trademark does not practice patent law.
