Intellectual property (IP) is a unique product of human invention and creativity. There are two broad categories of IP: industrial property and copyrights. Industrial property is the umbrella term that includes trademarks and patents. Broadly, intellectual property protection allows an individual or corporation to prevent others from using IP in an unauthorized manner, or in some cases, using IP that is confusingly similar to what has been protected. Each of the three main categories of IP have different key characteristics and processes as well as rules for obtaining protection.
