Copyright: Finding information patents and trademarks

Some projects will need patent or trademark protection rather than, or in addition to, copyright protection.  For example, a single item might need a patent for its design, a trademark for the item's name, and copyright protection for the artwork or graphics associated with the item.

To find other books on this topic, search the following subject phrase in the CIA library’s online catalog or OhioLINK’s online catalog. Copyright law and  established "best practices" (usually favorably considered by the courts) are constantly evolving, so look at the book's publication date when selecting further readings.
