What Are Likelihood of Confusion Factors?

Likelihood of confusion factors are the legal standards used to determine whether trademark infringement has occurred. The factors are also used as one of several tests conducted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to determine whether a trademark application is approved.

Every software developer or company has to choose between patent and copyright. Some decide they want both. To make the choice, you have to think about what you're protecting. Are you protecting the code itself, or are you protecting the software idea and the process? Getting a patent versus registering a copyright are very different processes and might also change what you want to do with your software.

Software counts as intellectual property (IP.) IP is an original work that isn't tangible, but that is valuable. Lots of avenues, including copyright and patent, exist under the law to protect IP.
