Is it really necessary to trademark/copywrite?

I will be showing my game at the inventors table at the Toronto toy and game fair in January. Do you find it necessary to trademark and or copyright your game since these do not prevent anyone from practically duplicating it anyway. It seems like a waste of money. Has anyone had their game idea stolen?

Good article. If this is the case, then it almost seems like a waste of time and money getting a copywrite/trademark. Will viewers at the trade show even know whether I have put a trademark/copywrite on the game anyway? Or could they just assume that I have?

Thanks for the article

In the education field, teachers get credit for their ideas by putting a copyright and email on their handouts. This allows other people to contact them for other things.
