Copyrights are the legal rights that protect original works (e.g., books, music, movies and art). Generally, copyrights protect original expression, such as words or images. They do not protect facts or ideas, although they may protect the original words or images used to describe an idea. Copyright also does not protect items such as names, titles and slogans; however, these may be covered by another legal right called a trademark.

A trademark is a word, slogan, symbol, or design (e.g., a brand name or logo) that differentiates the goods or services offered by one person, group, or company from those offered by others. Trademark laws generally seek to avoid confusion among consumers as to who provides or is associated with a product or service. Learn more about how to report trademark infringement.
