I always had a rough idea on the differences between trademarks and copyrights,

Copyrights primarily protect the rights of people who create literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works (like history tests, and software code).

Trademarks protect the use of a company’s name and its product names, brand identity (like logos) and slogans.

Recently I was asked to look into it by a client looking to potentially create some holiday decorations. They would want to know about the process of copyrighting their products, to keep costs down.  This is a surprisingly complicated and expensive process.
