Intellectual property law protects the kind of property that results from the efforts of using your mind and your thoughts, such as songs, inventions, literature, and advertising slogans. Since it is created out of your intellectual activity, it is called intellectual property.

There are generally four categories of intellectual property: copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secret:

  • A copyright protects an original work of art or literature, and can include many things like books, movies, music, photographs, and even computer software.
  • A trademark is a word, name, or symbol used to identify your goods or services, setting them apart and letting the world know you are the source of those goods or services.
  • A patent is a grant from the government that permits you to exclude others from making, using, selling or importing an invention.
  • A trade secret is any valuable information, such as a formula, pattern, or list, used in your business, which gives you an advantage over your competitors.

If someone wrongfully uses your intellectual property, you can file a lawsuit and ask the court to stop them from using your property. Additionally, you may be able to recover any damages or losses you suffered, and may even be able to get some of the profits they made using your intellectual property.
