Copywriting is words written with the purpose of selling...brochures, websites, sales letters, commercial scripts - these are copywriting tasks.

Copyright is a form of protection on written intellectual property including books, articles, songs, essays, and so on. It's the legal right to copy and distribute the work and it's derivatives. It typically belongs to the originator, but can be signed over through contracts to other parties (publishers, work-for-hire arrangements)

Just remember:

CopyWRITING has to do with WRITING copy.

CopyRIGHTing has to do with protecting your RIGHT as an author.

Copyright is a protection that covers published and unpublished literary, scientific and artistic works, whatever the form of expression, provided such works are fixed in a tangible or material form.While copywriting is a way of promoting certain article or book.

Good copywriting is the difference between people swarming to eat your hamburgers and sitting in a dusty fly ridden bodego with one window shopping prospector a week.

It's the sizzle on the paper that gets people salivating in anticipation and rush through the door to sample your goodies.

This might be a bit of topic, but the web is driven by copywriting that is copyrighted by the owner.

Copywriting is more of selling your product or making good reputation on a certain product or person.
