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 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.
