Since ancient times, proud craftspeople have put their individual marks on their work, and consumers have long depended on trademarks both to authenticate the source of the goods they buy and to stand for them as a mark of particular quality.About Trademarks
The copyright is, literally, the right to copy something. Under current U.S. copyright law this right belongs to the creator of an original work of authorship, and it exists from the moment the work is fixed in tangible form. The copyright has been recognized in law for hundreds of years.About copyrights
