Are you an entrepreneur?
It is important to know your company's intellectual property and are able to decide whether and how to protect it. You should also ensure that you don't infringe any third party intellectual property.
The intangible nature of the design of a teapot or the contents of a crime novel mean that they are easy to imitate. However, these “intangible” goods can have great monetary value – which means that only those who actually own this intellectual property (IP) should be the ones who are allowed to use it. This is why it’s possible to specifically protect various types of IP.
