Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property (IP)

Intellectual Property refers to any work that is the result of a person’s creativity and is unique to that person. The creations can be designs, logos, music, artistic works, inventions, etc.

Intellectual property rights give power to the creator to stop others from using that work without his/her permission. However, these rights are enforceable for a certain period of time only. The main purpose of providing protection to intellectual properties is to reward the creators.

Owing to present-day advanced technology, intellectual property such as trademarks, logos, artworks, etc. are easily available online. To prevent misuse of these creative works, the websites generally contain notices stating that unauthorized use of any intellectual property is illegal.
