New App and Flow Exercise Enable People to Learn About Patents, Copyrights and Trademarks (1001 hits)

These new products provide a process that helps people identify the appropriate protection (patent, copyright or trademark) for their ideas. Also included is basic information about patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, and descriptions about the differences between each form of protection. A prudent business practice is for a person to protect his/her intellectual property (ideas, inventions, artistic works, brands, etc.). However, sometimes, a person becomes confused regarding the proper protection for his/her intellectual property (IP). When some people conceive an idea, their first thought is to protect the idea with a patent. Although patents do protect a wide-range of ideas, patents do not all types of ideas. The type of protection one needs will depend on the type of idea that they have. For example, patents generally protect technical ideas. Copyrights protect artistic ideas. Trademarks protect the name/identity of a product. Trade secrets generally protect technical ideas as an alternative to a patent by keeping the information out of the public. Trade secrets also protect company and proprietary information. It is important to seek the appropriate form of protection for an idea. Using the wrong form of protection to protect an idea can result in no protection at all for the idea. View the Idea ID flow diagram to learn more about patents, copyrights and trademarks and how to identify the best protection for your idea. Go to:
