A UTILITY PATENT protects a useful, new and nonobvious invention with industrial applicability.
A DESIGN PATENT protects the visual design of objects that are not purely functional and contain aesthetic value.
A TRADEMARK is a recognizable sign or design that distinguishes a company’s products or services from those of others.
