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.

Trademark Symbol or TM Symbol

Patents protect Inventions or Methods that are new, useful, and non-obvious.

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.
