The law provides three means for you to protect your intellectual property from those who would unfairly capitalize on your efforts:    

A Trademark protects a brand name, product logo or other feature that distinguishes one company’s products from its competitors.  The intent of the law is to protect consumers from buying a look-alike, assuming it to be the real McCoy.  A trademark of a service is sometimes referred to as a Service mark. 

A Patent is an intellectual property right granted by the government to an inventor to exclude others from making, using, selling or importing the invention for a limited time, in exchange for public disclosure of the invention.  See http://www.USPTO.gov. 

A Copyright protects original works of authorship including books, scripts, music, art and design, and computer software.
