WHAT IS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY?

Property is anything that can be owned by a person. Originally property only applied to things which had a form or substance, for example a dress or a piece of land. Today however a person can own something that cannot be seen or touched e.g. computer software or music.

Intellectual property is something which results from the activities of a person’s mind- that is, something that comes into being because of the expression of someone’s thoughts.  

Examples of intellectual property can be;

  1. A song
  2. A novel
  3. A painting
  4. A computer software among others.
