Copyright protection is instantaneous as soon as a work is finished.

Trademark must be applied for.

Copyright cannot be "lost" it can only be sold or given away.

Trademark must be defended or it can be lost.

Copyright expires after a fixed period of time and cannot be renewed.

Trademarks can be renewed, theoretically forever.

Copyright works that pass into public domain cannot be recopyrighted.

Trademarks can be revived after expiration.

I think trade mark refers to a brand name. Design would probably fall under Copyright rather than TradeMark.

Through a trade mark. Most brand icons will have a little "tm" beneath them.

A trademark protects a logo, business name, or slogan from confusion in the marketplace; it is specifically registering a mark for use in trade. Copyright protects creative works, regardless of whether they are ever exploited for profit.

A trade mark is merely a logo identifying an individual or organisation, it may or may not be registered. A patent is a legal document identifying a product, process or substance to which the owner of the patent has ownership.

Names are not eligible for copyright protection. However, if you intend to use the name as a mark in trade, such as a business name, you may wish to register it as a trademark.

There is no difference between an exclamation mark and an exclamation point. They are two names for the same thing.

Nobody. It's public domain.

Depending on the product the name is the same. Goodwin Company is a trade mark name and is well known.There is no known difference in labeling the only difference is the product.

If it's a creative work, if would be protected by copyright law automatically. If it's a mark to be used in trade, such as a business name, slogan, or logo, it would be protected by trademark law automatically.

A collective trade mark can be obtained by an organization which can permit the members to use the mark. Collective trade mark cannot be owned by individuals or a body corporate. It has to be a registered association or Trust having many members or beneficiaries whereas a well-known trade is that trade mark which has been acquired by the user of the said mark by using the said mark for a long period of time and which associates the owner to the goodwill and name-fame related to his service or products. The safety afforded to a well-known trademark is on territorial basis.

A trademark would only be useful if you were using it as a logo, i.e., a mark used in trade.

Copyright would not protect a business name and logo; if you wish to register them as trademarks, contact the trademark office of the countries in which you wish to do business. It is also possible to get "common law" trademark protection simply by using the mark in trade.

The trademark for the company Commercial Blinds is a regular trade mark. A trademark is used to protect small business owners from copyright and other things.
