What is the difference between ®,™ and ©?

The ® signs stands for a registered trademark. So the trademark has gone through the legal registration procedure and a right has been established.

The © sign stands for copyright protection. The author of the work claims copyright protection based on copyright law. If the owner has indeed those rights cannot be said easily.

The ™ sign stands fora trademark right claim. Trademark rights have been requested by the owner of the trademark or the owner intends to file a trademark application. However no rights have been established yet because the trademark registration procedure has not been completed yet or still needs to be started.
