TRADEMARK PATENT AND COPYRIGHT
A trademark is a unique symbol or word(s) used to represent a business or its products. Once registered, that same symbol or series of words cannot be used by any other organization, forever, as long as it remains in use and proper paperwork and fees are paid.
To indicate that a trademark has been claimed companies use one of three symbols:
™ – Using the trademark symbol after a logo or phrase alerts competitors that you have claimed this symbol or phrase as your own, but you don’t have to have even formally apply for it.
® – Only trademarks that have been officially granted by the Trademark office can use the ® symbol, which stands for registered trademark.
℠ – Companies that sell services, not products, have the option to use the service mark logo, but most use the ™ instead for simplicity.
A patent is an exclusive right granted by a country to the owner of an invention to make, use, manufacture and market the invention, provided the invention satisfies certain conditions stipulated in the law. Exclusive right implies that no one else can make, use, import manufacture or market the invention without the consent of the patent holder. This right is available for a limited period of time.
A patent in the law is a property right and hence, can be gifted, inherited, assigned, sold or licensed. As the right is conferred by the State, it can be revoked by the State under very special circumstances even if the patent has been sold or licensed or manufactured or marketed in the meantime.
The patent right is territorial in nature and inventors/their assignees will have to file separate patent applications in countries of their interest, along with necessary fees, for obtaining patents in those countries.
Copyright is a legal protection extended to the owner of the rights in an original work of creation. Copyright holder holds the exclusive right to use or authorize others for use of the copyrighted material.
Copyright comprises two main sets of rights: The economic rights and moral rights.
Economic rights include the right of reproduction, broadcasting, public performance, adaptation, translation, public relation, public display, distribution and so on.
Moral rights include the author’s right to object to any distortion, mutilation or other modification of his work that might be prejudicial to his honor and reputation.
