Do you know these differences?

Many people think that the successful registration of a trademark is tantamount to having the copyright of the trademark, and can start a business with confidence. In fact, only the trademark is registered. Without copyright registration, you may not own the copyright of the trademark, and others can still apply for copyright registration. Although copyright and trademarks are intellectual property, the two are different concepts. Here are some differences between copyright and trademark.1. The applicant organization is different. Trademarks are applied for through the Trademark Office, and copyrights are registered through the China Copyright Registration Center. 2. The duration of protection is different. The term of a trademark is limited to 10 years, and a trademark renewal is required after the expiration. After the copyright is registered, the protection period is the author’s life and 50 years after death. 3. The content of protection is different. The trademark protects the different operators who provide the goods or services, and the trademark logo itself, which indicates the quality of the goods or services. Copyright is the protection of originals such as text, music, art, and scientific creation. 4. Trademarks are protected by category, and are divided into product trademarks and service trademarks; copyrights are not classified and are protected by law once registered. In fact, copyright and trademark can be applied together, and copyright registration will not hinder the progress of trademark application. So what are the advantages of applying trademark and copyright together?
