Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs and symbols, names and images used in commerce.
Trademark:- A trade mark is a sign that you can use to distinguish your business’ goods or services from those of other traders. A trade mark can be represented graphically in the form of your company’s logo or a signature. Through a registered trade mark, you can protect your brand (or “mark”) by restricting other people from using its name or logo.
Copyright:- Copyright is an automatic unregistered right that comes into existence every time an original work is created, published and performed. It protects your exclusive ownership rights over your intellectual creations like painting, novel or a photograph etc. In other words, the copyright law grants the owner a bunch of rights which includes right to reproduce, to prepare derivative works, to distribute copies, to perform the work and to display the work publicly. Registered copyright will give you more protection than unregistered ones.
Patent:- A patent is a right granted to the owner of an invention that prevents others from making, using, importing or selling the invention without his permission. A patentable invention can be a product or a process that gives a new technical solution to a problem. It can also be a new method of doing things, the composition of a new product, or a technical improvement on how certain objects work.Back
