The difference between patents and copyrights is the type of intellectual property that they protect from being exploited without their permission.Patents refer to an invention, whereas copyrights refer to the expression of an idea, such as an artistic work. Unlike patents and copyrights, trademarks do not expire after a set term of years. A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, and/or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.
