Patent is a protection for a new technical solution to a problem. A patent gives you exclusive right to commercially use an invention.
A trademark is a name, symbol or a distinguishing sign, which is used to identify products or services.
A design protection protects the appearance and shape, but not a product’s function or the underlying idea.
Copyright protects music, movies, literature and other creations such as sculptures, furniture, lamps and architecture. Even the source code to a software is protected by copyright.
