INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The law provides rights and protections for owners of property. Intellectual property is the fruits of mental labor and is intangible in nature. The rights and protections of owners of intellectual property are established through trade secret laws of the states and federal patent, trademark and copyright laws. Generally patents protect the invention of tangible items. Trademarks provide protection of a name or symbol identifying the source of goods or services. Copyrights protect the various forms of artistic and written expressions. In California, trade secrets are protected by the Uniform Trade Secrets Act which can be found in California Civil Code Section 3426-3426.11.
