What is Intellectual Property?

in·tel·lec·tu·al prop·er·ty [noun]

Intellectual property is a category of property that includes intangible creations of the human intellect.

Sometimes, it’s hard to know where to begin with patent law. What do I need to patent? What would a patent cover? Do I even need to acquire a patent, a trademark and/or copyright? In any business, it’s important to protect your assets. Think of your ideas and innovations as proprietary assets.
