“Intellectual Property” means property of the mind and encompasses the five ways to protect that property: patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and industrial design rights. Intellectual property law defines and protects the majority of creative works, including literature, music, inventions, and art. The United States Patent and Trademark Office is charged with instituting the procedures to protect intellectual property rights in a person’s original, intangible works. The law defines and allows each person to profit from these ideas personally developed for a certain amount of time.
