Copyright is instantaneous

Trademark has to be applied for

Copyright cannot be "lost"

Trademarks must be "vigorously" defended

Copyright has a fixed term

Trademarks have a variable term

Copyrights expire and cannot be renewed

Trademarks can be renewed indefinetly

Owning an image or the copyright to an image are the same thing. When you hold the copyright to an image it is yours to do with whatever you will, and you can decide who has permission to use it or not. There is no difference.

Copyright is a federal law protecting creators, and piracy is a form of violation of that law.

The copyright date is when the work was fixed in a tangible medium. The publication date is when it was made available to the public.

I assume you are asking the difference between plagiarism & copyright infringement. While both are essentially the use of someone elses work without permission, the most significant difference is that plagiarism also involves claiming that material as your own work.

If you register a copyright, that means you've created something and want to protect your rights to it. You can then license others to use that work. So copyright registration is saying "this is mine," and copyright licensing is saying "but you can use it."

There is virtually no difference; term of protection is still based on the dates of the artist.

Copyright is a federal law granting certain exclusive rights to the creator of a work. Copywriting is writing text (referred to as "copy") for advertisements.

A patent is the right, granted by the government, to exclude anybody from making, using or selling your invention. A copyright is the protection of an expression of ideas, such as art or a novel

Registration involves filing documents, for copyright protection, with an official government agency. Licensing is a negotiation between two or more parties wherein permission is granted, from one party to the other, to use copyrighted material in exchange for some type of remuneration.

A watermark is a word, or series of words, (do not copy, property of, etc) overlaid in such a way as to make reuse of a copyrighted work more difficult. A copyright notice is intended to to demonstrate ownership of a particular work, that it is protected by copyright, and when that protection began.

copywriting is the process of writing the words that promote a person or business or it is a software application by Bartas Technologies. And Copyright is when you give the writer exclusive rights for a certain time period in relation to that work.

The title page is at the beginning of a book or document and shows the name of the work, the Author's name and sometimes a dedication. The Copyright page is usually at the end of the book and shows references to resources and has a copyright paragraph. The copyright paragraph states that no one can copy this article or work without the express permission of the author.

Copyright can refer to an evolving series of intellectual property laws, designed to protect original works of authorship. It can also mean the action of registering a copyright on a particular work. Royalties are payments that are made to a rights holder when an authorized copy of their work is sold/used.

Copyright protects intellectual property. The copyright holder may issue a license to someone else, allowing them to use the property. For example, if you have written a song, you may issue a mechanical license to someone wishing to record it, or a print license to someone wishing to publish it.

Trademark vs. copyright is slightly difficult to decipher. Trademarks protect specific words, pictures, or symbols that actually identify a brand, company, or person. Copyright is more like protecting from plagiarism such as an authors journalism, a musical artists lyrics, and an artists painting.

Materials protected by copyright may only be used by their creators or rightsholders; anyone else wishing to use them must get permission. Materials in the public domain are available for free use for everyone.

Copyright law automatically protects creative works such as music and art. Patents are issued for innovative inventions, processes, and plant hybrids. Trademarks protect consumers by preventing fraud in the marketplace.

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.
