IP Basics

A jumping off point for your IP journey.

The term “intellectual property” refers to creations of the human mind. Intellectual property can be protected by patents, trademarks, copyrights, and/or trade secrets.

A trademark is a word, logo, phrase, or other identifier that identifies your goods or services and distinguishes you from your competitors.

Utility patents protect inventions. Patents allow you the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, or importing a patented invention.
