The two are wholly different in almost every aspect

Contrary to popular belief, trademarks don't protect the mark owner rather they protect the public from confusion between similar marks that exist in the marketplace. A mark can be represented by an image, word, trade-dress (i.e. look) or even color. Trademarks can last indefinitely.

A patent is a form of protection for novel, useful and non-obvious ideas. Patents are limited in time. A patent cannot be granted for a word or an image.

A trademark (https://www.myefilings.com/trademark-registration) can be a phrase, a word, a design or a symbol or it could also be a combination of phrases, symbols, words or designs, that helps to identify and differentiate the source of the goods of one party or firm or company from any other.

A trademark (https://www.myefilings.com/trademark-rectification) should be unusual and not descriptive and should be attached to the item that is being sold or offered for, in terms of services. The said Trademark should also be registered with the appropriate authority in order to obtain protection rights and proper legal ownership.

I for one can't distinguish between the two. It takes a lot of technical knowledge to understand what this is all about. - Phillip Elden (https://phillipeldenoregon.com/)
