A TRADEMARK IS A WORD, NAME, SYMBOL, OR PERCEIVABLE INDICIA, WHICH IS USED TO INDICATE THE ORIGIN OF A PRODUCT AND TO DISTINGUISH THAT PRODUCT FROM OTHERS. SIMILARLY, A SERVICE MARK IDENTIFIES AND DISTINGUISHES A SERVICE RATHER THAN A PRODUCT. IN SOME CASES, A COLOR, SMELL, OR SOUND CAN BE TRADEMARKED.
COPYRIGHTS PROTECT AUTHORS OF “ORIGINAL WORKS” WHETHER THEY ARE PUBLISHED OR UNPUBLISHED. THE 1976 COPYRIGHT ACT GENERALLY GIVES THE COPYRIGHT OWNERS THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO:

– Perform or display the copyrighted work publicly.
