what is exact difference between copy rights and patent rights?..

Answer / sukhdev singh

here are basically five major legal differences between a
copyright and a patent : subject matter protected,
requirement for protection, when protection begins,
duration, and infringement. There's
also a sixth practical one: cost.

Subject matter: A copyright covers "works of authorship,"
essentially means literary, dramatic, and musical works,
graphic, and sculptural works, audio-visual works, sound
pantomimes and choreography. A patent covers an invention,
essentially means a new and non-obvious useful and
functional feature of
a product or process.

Requirement for protection: In order for a work to be
copyrighted, it
must be original and fixed in a tangible medium of
expression; no
formalities are required (see section 2.3). In order for an
invention to
be patented, it must be novel (i.e., new), non-obvious, and
useful and a
patent must be issued by the United States Patent and
Trademark Office.

Start of protection: Copyright protection begins as soon as
a work is
created. Patent protection does not begin until the patent
is issued.

Duration: A copyright generally lasts for the life of the
author, plus 50
years (see section 2.4). In the U.S., a patent lasts for 17
years from
the date granted (in some nations, particularly Japan and
most European
nations, the duration is 20 years, and is measured from
date of

Infringement: For a copyright to be infringed, the work
itself must have
actually been copied from (either wholly or to create a
derivative work),
distributed, performed, or displayed. If a person other
than the
copyright owner independently comes up with the same or a
similar work,
there is no infringement. In contrast, a patent confers a
monopoly that prevents anyone other than the patent holder
from making,
using, or selling the patented invention. This is true even
if that
person independently invents the patented invention.

Cost: A copyright is essentially free. Even if you want to
register the
copyright, the cost is only $20, and the paperwork is much
complicated than the 1040A short form for filing your
income tax, well
within the capabilities of the person registering the
copyright. A
patent, on the other hand, is much more costly; there are
fees to the
Patent and Trademark Office, and the patent application
process is much
more complex, usually requiring the services of a
registered patent agent
(and perhaps a lawyer) to draft and prosecute the
application, adding to
the cost.

Philosophically, you can look at a copyright as protecting
the author's
rights that are inherent in the work; in contrast, a patent
is a reward
of a statutory monopoly to an inventor in exchange for
providing the
details of the invention to the public.

what is exact difference between copy rights and patent rights?..

Answer / rajesh cfa

: A copyright protects original works that fall under the categories of literature, dramatic, musical, artistic, and intellectual. These works may be published or unpublished, and the Copyright Act of 1976 gives the owner exclusive rights to reproduce their work in any medium. A copyright protects a form of expression, but not the subject matter of the work. For example, if someone wrote an article about a new car on the market, the text would be copyrighted, preventing someone else from using that particular material. However, a copyright does not prevent others from writing their own original article about this new car, or from using or making the car themselves.

A trademark is used to protect a word, symbol, device or name that is used for the purpose of trading goods. The trademark indicates the source of goods and distinguishes them from the goods of others. A trademark may also be used to prevent others from using a mark that might be confused with another; trademarks, however, do not prevent other people or businesses from producing the same product or services under a different mark.

A patent for an invention grants a property right to the inventor that will prevent anyone else from making, using, or selling an invention. A patent lasts for a limited amount of time, usually 20 years from the date the application was filed, and is only effective in the country in which it was filed. The application for a patent must include a detailed description of how the invention works. Since a patent is considered "property," it may be bought, sold, mortgaged, or licensed by the owner

A patent specifically as it safeguards the technological aspects of new or unique methods. In patents one can secure one's unique method of processing whereas in copyright, it gives one an exclusive right to own some idea, expression and even information. Copyrights claim that the material belongs to some certain person and cannot be used without one's permission.

Benjamin O'Henry has owned and operated O'Henry's Data Services since its beginning ten years ago. From all appearances, the business has prospered. In the past few years, you have become friends with O'Henry and his wife. Recently, O'Henry mentioned that he has lost his zest for the business and would consider selling it for the right price. You are interested in buying this business, and you obtain its most recent monthly unadjusted trial balance which follows: O'Henry's Data Services Unadjusted Trial Balance November 30, 20XX Cash……………………………… $9,700 Accounts receivable……………………… 7,900 Prepaid expenses………… 2,600 Furniture, fixtures, & equipment 151,300 Accumulated depreciation $15,600 Accounts payable………… 3,800 Salary payable……………… Unearned service revenue 6,700 Benjamin O'Henry, capital 137,400 Benjamin O'Henry, withdrawals 2,000 Service revenue………… 14,300 Rent expense…………… Salary expense………… 3,400 Utilities expense……… 900 Depreciation expense Supplies expense…… Total…………………………………………. $177,800 $177,800 Revenues and expenses vary little from month to month, and November is a typical month. Your investigation reveals that the unadjusted trial balance does not include the effects of monthly revenues of $2,100 and monthly expenses totaling $2,750. If you were to buy O'Henry's Data Services, you would hire a manager who would require a monthly salary of $3,000. The most you would pay for the business is 20 times the monthly net income you could expect to earn from it. Compute this possible price. The least O'Henry will take for the business is his ending capital. Compute this amount. Under these conditions, how much should you offer O'Henry? Give your reason. I have the mathimatical part ok , please give reasons on how much and why I they would offer him the amount.
