Tuesday Tips

Trademarks and Service Marks

What is the difference between a trademark and a service mark?


A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or a combination of words, phrases, symbols or designs, that identifies and distinguishes the maker of a product from those of others. A service mark is the same as the trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product.

Do trademarks, copyrights and patents protect the same thing?

NO Absolutely NOT. Trademarks, copyrights and patents are all different. A copyright protects an original artistic or literary work; a patent protects an invention.
