How is a copyright different from a patent or trademark?

They’re the same in that it is a form of intellectual property, but a copyright protects original works of art and authorship. A trademark protects words, symbols or slogans that are used as brands, and patents is a form of protection that covers useful, new and non-obvious improvements to pre-existing technology or you could get a design patent, which is similar to a copyright or you could get a plant patent. It’s a form of protection, intellectual property protection that can be used as one of many to protect a business.
