Intellectual Property Rights

The right of a person or company to exclusively use its own ideas, plans, and other intangible assets without competition, at least for a certain period of time.

The idea behind the protection of intellectual property is to encourage innovation without fear that a competitor may steal the idea and/or take credit for it.
