Presented by Intellectual Property Office
Intellectual property is something unique that you physically create. Having the right type of intellectual property protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying - the names of your products or brands, your invention, the design or look of your products, things you write, make or produce.
Creatives and businesses produce and use intellectual property all the time, perhaps without realising it. This includes websites, marketing materials, music, paintingsand even ideas! Copyright is the legal protection that allows the owner the right to exclusively control and exploit their creative works as they see fit - so well worth knowing about.
