About registering the name of an animation production studio and comic publishing company

Hi. This is serious. I took a course called "Intellectual Property And The Law", which covered info on trademarks, copyrights and patents when I was in art school but it has been years since I have kept up with this stuff.

I am not an expert on the business and legality of intellectual properties.

From https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/small-business/trademark-vs-copyright#:~:text=Copyright%20protects%20original%20work%2C%20whereas,in%20the%20course%20of%20business :

" Copyright protects original work, whereas a trademark protects items that distinguish or identify a particular business from another. Copyright is generated automatically upon the creation of original work, whereas a trademark is established through common use of a mark in the course of business "

From https://www.dictionary.com/browse/patent :

A patent is "the exclusive right granted by a government to an inventor to manufacture, use, or sell an invention for a certain number of years. an invention or process protected by this right. an official document conferring such a right; letters patent."

I want to register the names of my own animation production studio and my own comics publishing company. Do I register for PATENTS for these company names?

How do I register the names of these two companies?

Please help. Thank you.

@JGoldman10,
This site does not give out legal advice.

PLEASE consult with an attorney and yes, that means paying them.

@jespah,
I'm not paying anyone if someone here can just tell me how to register the names of something.

I will contact my old school and ask them.

@JGoldman10,
You are asking for legal advice and people go to school for a long time for that and they deserve to be paid.

@jespah,
The USPTO has contact info on their website. I will call and ask someone how to register the name for an animation studio and and a name for a comics publishing company.

I just want to register the names of my own animation studio and my own comics publishing company and produce and publish my works online.

What in the heck did they teach him in his alleged "Intellectual Property And The Law" course? I'm going to assume that he was duped by another run-of-the-mill sketchy for-profit community college.

@JGoldman10,
Do you know how to use a phone?

They may be a tutorial online.
