Intellectual property relates to creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, as well as symbols, names and images used in commerce.
Author’s rights range from books, music, painting, sculpture and films to computer programs, databases, advertisements, maps and technical drawings.
The copyright law in the West began in 1710 with the Statute of Queen Anne and is recognized as one of the fundamental human rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
To balance the interest of innovators and the public interest, the intellectual property system seeks to foster an enabling environment for creativity and innovation to thrive.
