There are separate and distinct types of intellectual property (IP). IP encompasses creative works or inventions in which the creator or owner has exclusive rights. These rights are enforceable by the owner under various intellectual property laws, including copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets.

IP is inherent in all businesses – images, publications, inventions, products, software, etc. Whether you are an individual artist or a corporate conglomerate, you have intellectual property that needs to be protected. Brenda L.
