Many people find that they are confused between a copyright and a trademark. Knowing the difference and how to protect your original work is something that everyone should be prepared to do. A copyright determines who owns the work and who can publish, copy or distribute a work. Usually the person that created the original work is the owner and their permission is needed for any reproducing. However, there are some instances where the original creator is not the owner of the copyright.
