Patent protection is available for inventions and designs that are useful, novel and would not have been obvious to a person of ordinary skill in the art as of the time the invention or design was made.
A "trademark” (or “mark”) is any word, name, symbol or device, or any combination of these, that is used in commerce to designate, identify and distinguish the goods of one manufacturer or seller from the goods manufactured or sold by others, and to indicate the source of the goods.
Copyright protects “original works of authorship” and most writings and artistic creations are subject to copyright protection including books, photographs, musical recordings and computer programs.
