What is patent and copyright registration and how can I apply for it?
Patents and copyrights are intellectual property rights granted by the federal government. Both copyright and patent rights protect different forms of intellectual properties. Patents protect an invention's unique and novel feature. A copyright protects original works in a tangible form, including literary, artistic, musical, and dramatic work. For registering patents, a patent application should be filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). For copyright registration, one has to forward a copyright application to the U.S. Copyright Office.
Patent and copyright applications are available on the US Legal Forms website. Our website also contains patent and copyright infringement and assignment forms.
