What Is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, and symbols, names, and images used in commerce. Patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets are protected by state and federal laws which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.
There are four types of intellectual property:
- Patents: These are exclusive rights granted to an inventor for a limited time in exchange for public disclosure of an invention. Patents are granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and provide you with an exclusive right to prevent or stop others from commercially exploiting an invention for 20 years from the date of filing of the patent application.
- Trademarks: A trademark is a type of intellectual property that applies where an individual or entity places goods and services in interstate commerce, and is used to protect the name, logo, or slogan associated with a good or service from being used by others without permission. A trademark is a source identifier which is meant to protect one’s brand or public recognition of one’s goods or services from competitors. A trademark can be words, phrases, symbols, designs, or any combination thereof, that identify and distinguish the source of the goods of one party from those of others. Trademarks are granted by the USPTO and are valid for 10 years, with the ability to renew for additional 10-year periods.
- Copyrights: A copyright is defined as the exclusive legal right, given to an originator or an assignee to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material, and to authorize others to do the same. These are exclusive rights granted to the author of a creative work, such as a book, movie, song, or painting. Copyrights are granted by the U.S. Copyright Office and, depending on several factors, are valid for a term of ninety (90) to one hundred twenty (120) years, or for the life of the author plus a term of seventy (70) years.
- Trade Secrets: These are confidential business information, such as a secret device, ingredient, or technique used by a company in manufacturing its products, that gives a company a competitive edge. Trade secrets are intellectual property rights that relate to confidential information which is commercially valuable, known only to a limited group of persons, and be subject to reasonable steps taken by the rightful holder of the information to keep it secret. Trade secrets can include formulas, practices, processes, designs, instruments, patterns, or compilations of information. Unlike patents, trademarks, and copyrights, trade secrets are not registered with the government and are protected indefinitely, as long as they remain secret.
