Intellectual Property (IP) generally refers to four separate and distinct types of intangible property – patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. Like real and personal property, intellectual property is an asset, which can be bought, sold, licensed, exchanged, or even given away. Owners of intellectual property have the exclusive right to prevent the unauthorized use or sale of their intellectual property. Creations of the mind that are covered under intellectual property law include musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs.
Free curriculum and presentations are available for your use! Encourage your students to explore the importance of the patent system!
