Intellectual property and the best ways to protect it – certain issues

The term intellectual property (IP) has a broad meaning, and is defined as any
products of human intellect, such as inventions, works, designs, and symbols or
images, that the law protects against unauthorised use by others. IP protected
by law enables the creators to use their products and benefit from them at their
