Copyright registration and protection is afforded for literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. If the brand has a unique logo with artistic characteristics, then the logo of the business can be copyrighted to obtain additional brand registration, under the law. Logos that are not very unique or have no artistic characteristics usually cannot be copyrighted. An example of a copyrightable logo is the logo of Starbucks Coffee, which has unique and artistic characteristics.
Application for copyright of logo must be made to the Copyright Office in the prescribed format. Copyright registration is typically faster than trademark registration. Therefore, businesses that require quick brand registration can apply for a copyright registration in addition to the trademark registration.
