Re: registered logo design vs. trademark?
Copyrights are for artistic creations- art drawings & paintings, musical compositions, writing and poetry etc.
Trademarks are for business and product logo designs, names, slogans, and label designs.
Trademark registering will cost several hundred dollars, and you have to do a search first for similar designs. With honey labels and logos, this would be a very real possibility, since so many honey businesses use images of bees and flowers and hives. You also have to pay to renew the registration every few years.
Then, if someone copies you it's totally your responsibility to take that person to court or sue them- you get to hire a lawyer and pay all your legal costs to fight them in court. And you could lose. And as Margie points out there are U.S. patent/trademark/copyright protections and there are international ones- two different applications. Most product design pirates are located overseas. Not easy to sue them.
You can always just create a new logo instead.
For a small scale honey label and business logo?- I'd say not worth it. Just make and sell your honey products and enjoy it. If your business gets huge then think about it again.
(FWIW I'm a patent and trademark illustrator for a living.)
