Patents and Music: This is not a copyright article


“Patents are an exclusive right granted to inventions, that is, products and processes that are new, inventive and industrially applicable. When it comes to music, original compositions are commonly protected by copyright or trademarks (the latter being only possible in countries where registration of soundmarks is allowed).”
