Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) is the result of intellectual or artistic activity, created by a member of the university in a scholarly, professional, or student capacity that can be owned by a person. Some examples of IP are inventions, publications, computer software, works of art, or industrial and artistic designs. Depending on the type of intellectual property, they are protected under different kinds of legislation such as patent, copyright, industrial design, or trademark laws.
