Definition of Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property (IP) is a type of intangible property that includes creations of the mind, such as ideas, designs, and works of art.

In the context of a website, IP includes text content, images, logos, videos, or music that are original creations and are owned by the website.

Any unauthorized usage or duplication of these assets can infringe upon the intellectual property rights of the website and thus require legal action measures to protect it.

To ensure that IP remains secure, webmasters should register their work with an appropriate entity in order to receive full legal protection.
