What is a trademark? What is a copyright?

Many people often confused copyrights and trademarks or use them interchangeably when they actually protect different things. Copyrights typically protect original works of authorship such as novels, movies, songs, computer software and poetry. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, domain names, names, titles or slogan. Trademarks on the other hand protect a word, phrase, symbol or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of goods of one party from those of others.
