Paper Abstract

Intellectual Property typically refers to patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks that are used to protect the innovative efforts of an organization. Patents protect certain novel, useful and non-obvious inventions. Copyright protect particular expressions of an idea, though not the idea itself. Trade secrets protect information that has value by virtue of not being generally known of readily ascertainable by others. Trademarks protect certain goodwill associated with the organization's goods and services.
