Copyright is an exclusive right granted to the creator to make sure that no one copies his work whether published or unpublished. This is done to protect any piece of art such as a novel, music or any content invented by the original creator and to make sure they are rewarded for the work they have done. Whereas, trademark is basically a word, symbol or a name that distinguishes one firm from the other. It is an important way to differentiate your products or services from the other competitors operating in the market. Trademark registration is important to enhance your brand visibility in the international market. Therefore, it should be unique and should not match with other trademarks registered by any other organization. Trademarks and copyright are essential aspects to protect your work from being copied by others.

Trademark and Copyright Registration- How to get them?
A person who wants to get his trademark registered can apply for registration in the Trademark office. After proper verification of the documents and making sure that no one else is using this trademark, the firm or an organization is granted that trademark. This is an indication of the fact that no one can use that trademark without prior permission from that firm. The trademark registration is valid for a time span of 10 years and then due for renewal. But, the important point to be kept in mind is that before filing an application for registration, conduct a proper search. This is done to make sure that your registration is not denied if the same trademark is being used by some other firm in the market.
On the other hand, the application for copyright registration is filed in the office of Registrar of Copyrights. It may take some months but it is a perfect way to save and protect your work from being stolen.
Both of these are the perfect ways to get your invention or business protected from any destructive activity. In case there is a copyright or trademark infringement, legal action can be taken against that person or organization.
