Trademarks, copyrights, and patents are all types of intellectual property. Trademarks are business-oriented and protect brand names, slogans, and logos. Copyrights protect artistic works, like books, movies, paintings, and music. Patents are technical and scientific. Patents protect inventions, like machines and ways of manufacturing.


Applying for a trademark or a patent is a legal proceeding. The law requires trademark and patent applications be examined by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) before they can be approved. USPTO registration is neither instantaneous nor guaranteed. For instance, each trademark registration application must be reviewed. Applications may be refused or need to be corrected. You may be required to pay additional fees. Read more about Trademark Basics.
