Trademarks and copyrights are two very different types of intellectual property rights. As an artist you may need both, but first you’ll need to understand the difference between them.
Read Nicholas Wells’ Hints ‘n’ Tips article on trademarks and copyrights in the March 2012 edition of 15 Bytes.

Great article on basics of copyrights and trademarks. I’ll point out, however, that intellectual property can be a very complicated area of law, and it’s always a good idea to seek the counsel of an intellectual property attorney when dealing with intellectual property. It’s particularly important to seek the advice of a qualified professional in regards to securing a federally registered trademark or copyright, and always prior to using someone else’s in your artwork or business, or allowing someone else to use your copyrighted material or trademark.
