The Basics

What is intellectual property?

Intellectual property refers to items such as names, logos, copyrights, and trademarks. Because these are intangible items, standard property rights law doesn’t apply. Intellectual property rights laws were created to protect the right of a party to use and reproduce their idea.

The person who initially creates something of value is considered the owner of the intellectual property. An exception to this may exist when an employer contracts with an employee or independent contractor to create something for the employer, depending on the contract or agreement between the parties. Additionally, rights for an item may be sold or given away through various forms of licensing agreements.

Various disputes can arise regarding intellectual property. These disputes may be related to:

  • Breaches of contract
  • Licensing agreements
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Intellectual property agreements
  • Copyright issues
  • Trade secrets
  • Unfair competition
