Intellectual Property Law

What is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as; inventions, artistic and literary works, and symbols, designs, images and names used in the commercial sector.

IP is divided into two categories:

  • Industrial property, which covers inventions (patents), industrial designs, trademarks, and geographical indications of source, and;
  • Copyright, which covers literary/artistic creations, artistic performances, phonogram recordings, and live broadcast recordings.
