What is intellectual property
What is Intellectual Property?

  • Creative works and ideas are considered to be property that has value. This property is protected from theft by federal laws.

  • The creator of that property owns it and must be credited or compensated when someone else uses it.

  • Plagiarism can cost you grade points in middle and high school, or even get you expelled once you reach college.
