The Difference Between a Copyright, Trademark, and Patent

Posted on: 27 January 2009

Phosita explains this very succintly and very clearly.

Considering how complex intellectual property law can be, it is understandable that many people – including authors, journalists, biz and tech bloggers, tweeple, etc. – confuse the terms and oftentimes speak/write of “patenting a book” or “copywriting a new gadget”.  I also receive a large number of requests asking for advice on how to “copyright an idea” – so, I thought it would be helpful to lay out a short and concise explanation of each area of intellectual property law.

A must read for anyone considering protecting their intellectual property.
