Understanding Intellectual Property: Patents and Copyright
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce.
IP is divided into two categories: Industrial property, which includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source; and Copyright, which includes literary and artistic works. (Source: World Intellectual Property Organization)
Featuring a selected list of library and Internet resources with specific topics and categories, this Topical Research Guide aims at facilitating researchers to explore and capture relevant patents and copyright information required at different stages of the research cycle in the course of creating knowledge, inventions and processes.
