Intellectual property is any property that is not physical, for example trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and trade dress. Unlike physical property that is protected by recording its title, intellectual property is protected by registering it and taking steps to defend it (or keep it secret, if appropriate). Individuals most frequently face intellectual property issues when trying to figure out what constitutes “fair use” of someone else’s intellectual property, i.e. can your civil organization use a popular song or can school children perform a popular play?
