Frequently asked questions

Usually, determining whether something can be copyrighted is easy. Original works of art, photographs, books, movies, songs are copyrightable. When you start moving towards more technical works and drawings, it can become a little trickier. At The Trademark Company, we can help you copyright your:

  • Written work such as fiction, nonfiction, poetry, textbooks, reference works or articles
  • Directories or catalogs, advertising copy
  • Computer programs
  • Website or online materials
  • Photograph
  • Art Work
  • Maps
  • Technical Drawings
  • Recorded performance of music or sound
  • Written music & lyrics, screenplay or script
  • A Choreographic work
  • A recorded score for a movie or play
  • Feature film, documentary film, animated film, television show, video, or other Audi-Visual Work

Copyrights protect artistic works such as books, photographs, arts, movies and music.

A trademark protects a word, phrase, symbol and/or design that distinguishes the source of the goods. A trademark, if properly maintained, can last forever.

A patent protects “any new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof”. Unlike trademarks, which protect a brand name and recognition, a patent protects an invention, including the functionality or design. A patent gives the owner the exclusive right to manufacture products or employ processes covered by the patent for 20 years from the earliest priority date.  

Generally speaking, the owner of a copyright registration has the right to do the following:

  • reproduce copies of the work
  • prepare derivative works
  • distribute copies
  • perform the work publicly either in person or recorded
  • display the work publicly

In most cases, a copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years. For instance, if the author of the work died in 1970, then the copyright, in most situations, would last until 2040. For works made for hire, and for anonymous and pseudonymous works, the duration of copyright is 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation, whichever is shorter.
