Protect Your Intellectual Property

First, what is intellectual property (IP)? Basically, IP can be defined as a literary/artistic work, invention, symbol, or anything else that results from creativity. Depending on the type of intellectual property, there are three different ways to gain protection.

Copyrights Ip Protection

Copyrights

Firstly, a copyright, by definition, is the protection of literary or artistic works. For example, some copyrighted works are films, novels, poems, songs, lectures, plays, choreography, drawings, paintings, sculptures, architecture, maps, and many other artistic/literary works. Also, a copyright is commonly identified by the “©” symbol.

Trademarks Ip Protection

Trademarks

Secondly, a trademark protects brand names and logos used on goods and services. Trademarkable intellectual property are things such as titles, names, short phrases, slogans, symbols, listings of contents or ingredients, variations of font and coloring. For example, our name, Carson Patents®, uses the “®” symbol to recognize the trademark registered name. In addition, if an owner claims an unregistered mark, they may be able to use the “TM” symbol.

Patents Ip Protection

Patents

Lastly, a patent, put simply, is protection of a new invention. There are three types of patents: utility (function of invention), design (appearance of invention), and plant (botanical). For example, patentable intellectual property, broadly, are ideas, procedures, methods, systems, processes, concepts, principles, or discoveries.
