Re: How to patent something?
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You copyright a name, or a song, or a graphic, whereas a patent is usually a process or a machine. That's by no means a complete list, just an example. For example, if you invent a tracked machine that pulls a plow, you could patent quite a bit of stuff on the machine itself that was unique, and then you would copyright the name Bungacrap, or Modotrac, or whathaveyou.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]VERY often, the item HAS a combination of both copyright AND patent.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
