How to protect a font

(This is my humble first post on this forum. I have searched via google, this forum and the typowiki for the answer. If I have overlooked the answer I apologize, but would very much appreciate it if you could point me in the right direction.)

As I understand it fonts are not generally considered copyrighted, but there names can be trademarked as a form of protection.

If this is true how many or in which countries should I trademark my font?

Also I have designed the font in the UK. will it be subject to copyright here? Is there any additional steps I need to take to secure copyright?

Anyway, I don’t think the Release section of the forum is the most appropriate.
