Intellectual property law seeks to encourage the creation of a large variety of intellectual goods intended to offer moral rights to the creator whilst providing businesses with the opportunity of enjoying these property rights.
This gives economic incentive for their creation, because it allows people to profit from their intellectual goods or information that they create. No doubt, these economic incentives are expected to stimulate innovation and contribute to the technological progress of countries, which depends on the extent of protection granted to innovators.
Needless to say therefore that the responsibility of protecting an Intellectual property lies with the creator. There are various ways in which a creator can seek to do this (depending on the subject matter of creation). Trademarks (TM or R), Patents (P), Design & Industrial Designs (D), Copyright © are the main methods of protection. Unlike traditional property, intellectual property is indivisible – an unlimited number of people can “consume” an intellectual good without it being depleted.
