Understanding Your Intellectual Property Rights

Just as you have rights regarding your physical property, state and federal laws protect your rights in regard to intangible property. Other parties are prohibited using your intellectual property without authorization. This is known as infringement.

Intellectual property includes a large variety of commercial assets, such as:

  • Business names
  • Logos
  • Inventions
  • Products
  • Publications
  • Symbols
  • Slogans
  • Creative works (music, films, etc.)
  • Architecture

Note that this list is not exhaustive; other creative works and commercial assets not listed here may be protected by intellectual property law.

Additionally, there are three primary methods of protecting your intellectual property:

  • Copyrights, which grant exclusive use rights to distribute creative works
  • Trademarks, which protect the use of specific marks used in commerce in regards to specific products, goods, and/or services
  • Patents, which grant exclusive rights to inventors and/or manufacturers to use or distribute an original invention
