* What is a copyright? A copyright is used for original work in areas of intellectual property, literature, music and artistry. Under the Copyright Act of 1976, the owner of the material has exclusive rights to use any medium to reproduce that work. An example of copyright infringement is when someone makes illegal copies of that creative piece of work.
* What is a trademark? A trademark is used for words, symbols or devices to distinguish that particular item from others similar to it. An example of trademark infringement is when an individual or entity uses the brand on a knock-off item.
