Registering a trademark is an important part of protecting your intellectual property and establishing a recognizable brand. Therefore, if you're starting a business, be sure to register your symbol, logo, or brand name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

A copyright is a legal certification that a certain person or company owns a creative work. No one is allowed to distribute or reproduce the work without the copyright owner’s permission. If you create a written text or one of the other kinds of works eligible for copyright, you are its owner even if you do not formally register a copyright for it with the U.S. Copyright Office. Why, then, do people spend the effort in registering copyrights if you still own your work without them? In some situations, registering a copyright prevents others from taking credit for your work and profiting from it.
Registering a copyright is not complicated enough to require a lawyer, but it is easier to have a professional prepare your copyright application. Instead of hiring a lawyer, choose a California legal document assistant to help guide you through the copyright basics.
