A copyright is a collection of rights automatically vested to you once you have created an original work.
A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.

Thank you for your question

Copyright protects your art and writings such as books, movies, songs, paintings, photographs and web content. As the owner of the copyright you can control how your is reproduce, distributed and presented publically and sue infringes in a court.

An Idea itself cannot be copyrighted a work must be fixed and in a tangible form to be protected.

Trademark protects your names, symbols, or slogans for products or services. Trademarks includes a brand name such as Coca cola and images such as Nike. As a owner of trademark you can sue in case of tademark infringement and stop anyone who used your symbols, name, or slogans.

Hope this will help you

Best Regards,

Akshay Gupta

No, trademark and copyright are two different types of Intellectual Property Right

Copyright is the protection given to the author for their intellectual, unique, and creative work without their consent. Whereas Trademark is the brand element that distinguishes your goods and services from that of your competitors and other traders.

Copyright can be granted for books, dramatics, lecture, music, painting, architecture, photograph, cinematography, maps etc.

Trademark can be in the form of word, logo, slogan or unconventional mark like sound, gesture, animations etc.

The validity for Copyright is lifetime of the author of the work plus sixty years from their death. Whereas Trademarks validity is 10 years which can be made perpetual if renewed every 10 years.

The area of Intellectual Property rights is very wide and provides protection for different types of intangible assets. It covers protection for trademark, copyright, Patent, Geographical Indications.


Trademark includes any word, symbol or logo that distinguishes the products of one person from the other person. It distinguishes the goods or services of one person from those of others. Such brand or logo is registered under Trademark Act. It has to be unique and distinct. Trademark is to protect your brand name and logo from others. Brand creates the value for the business. It allows the customer to know the authenticity of the product from its owner.


Copyright is to protect original works including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works, cinematography and sound recordings. It is for the creativity. It gives the right to reproduce, license, to distribute copies of the copyrighted work. Copyright is for both published and unpublished work.


Patent is for protection of inventions. Inventors can give right to use his inventions through license. It is also a pride for the country.
