Copyright law protects sufficiently creative works of art – including, but not necessarily limited to - literary, musical, and graphical works. It does not protect "utilitarian" products.
If you describe your invention in writing, copyright protection will generally be automatic. This will have the potential to protect against others directly copying your description of your invention.
However, your “copyright” will not do anything to prevent others from writing their own description of your invention, nor will it do anything to prevent others from making, using, or selling your invention. Registering your copyright will not change this, either.
