What constitutes "intellectual property"?
Intellectual property is intangible personal property that, as the phrase implies, is created by the mind.
Four well-recognized types of intellectual property rights are copyrights, trademarks, patents and trade secrets.
Like tangible real or personal property, the law recognizes the right to own, license and sell intellectual property.
