Your copyright attorney can explain further details about the different kinds of copyright.

What are Types of Trademarks?
A trademark offers legal protection for a word, symbol, phrase, logo, design, or combination of those that represents a source of goods or services. Types of trademarks for products include five main categories: generic mark, descriptive mark, suggestive mark, fanciful, and arbitrary mark.
