Lions Ground is dedicated to assisting individuals and businesses in protecting their intellectual property rights. The Lions Ground Terms of Conditions prohibit users from uploading content that infringes on another’s intellectual property rights, such as copyright or trademark.
Copyright is a legal term that refers to the protection of original works of art (example: books, music, film, art). Copyright is a legal term that refers to the protection of original expression, such as words or images. Although it may preserve the original words or visuals used to depict an idea, it does not protect facts or ideas. Names, titles, and slogans are also not protected by copyright; but, a trademark, which is a separate legal property, may.
A trademark is a word, slogan, symbol, or design (for example, brand name, logo) that differentiates one person, group, or company’s products or services from those of another. In general, trademark law aims to prevent consumers from being confused about who makes or sells a product or service. Learn more about how to report trademark infringement.
