Copyright

A copyright is a form of protection provided for by the United States Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression.  A copyright covers both published an unpublished works.  Your copyright will indicate to the public the source of the goods or services.  You are not required to register your copyright, but federal registration of your copyright has several advantages including notice to the public of your ownership of the copyright.  Registered works may be eligible for statutory damages and attorney's fees in successful litigation.  Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form like writing on a piece of paper.  

There is a difference between a copyright and a trademark.  See below...

What is a copyright?

A copyright protects works of authorship, such as writings, music, and works of art that have been tangibly expressed. For more information, contact the U.S. Copyright Office (a division of the Library of Congress).  Please call me with questions about a filing a copyright registrations.

What is a trademark?

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.


How is a copyright different from a patent?
A copyright protects original works of authorship and a patent protects inventions or discoveries.  Ideas and discoveries are not protected by copyright law.  However, the way in which and idea or discovery are expressed may be protected by a copyright.
