What is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual Property broadly describes “creations of the mind” such as inventions; literary and artistic works; and symbols, text, and images used to identify a business.
Intellectual Property, or “IP” Laws, are designed to protect these creations of the mind. IP laws generally fit into the following categories: patent law, trademark law, copyright law, and trade secret law.
Patents protect Inventions or Methods that are new, useful, and nonobvious.
Trademarks protect Source Identifiers. Source Identifiers are text, graphics, etc. that symbolize a business. Trademarks represent the identity of good or service.
Trade Secrets protect confidential information that provides a competitive advantage.
Copyrights protect original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium.
