Intellectual Property

Intellectual property refers to any intellectual creation, such as literary works (books, stories, poem, plays), artistic works (paintings, sculptures, drawings), inventions, designs, symbols, names, images, computer code, and more.

Intellectual property law exists in order to protect the creators of such works and covers areas of copyright, trademark law, and patents.
