Copyright protects your expression, not mere ideas or facts but your expression of them.

It must be original and unlike patents it does not require any special registration process in this country. Copyright does not protect original ideas, just the original expression of those ideas! Currently the duration of a copyright is the life of the author plus 70 years.

This is the area of intellectual property law which protects ideas, registration of which can be complicated and expensive. A patent confers upon its holder, for a limited period, usually 20 years, the exclusive right to exploit (making, using, selling, distributing, importing) the patented invention, and excludes any other party doing any of these things without the consent of the owner of the patent. A patent is a form of ‘industrial property’, which can be assigned, transferred, licensed or used by the owner.
