The term "intellectual property" (IP) denotes the specific legal rights
which authors, inventors and other IP holders may hold and exercise, not
the intellectual work itself. Under the intellectual property laws, the
holder of one of these abstract "properties" has certain exclusive
rights concerning the creative work, commercial symbol, or invention.
The basic rationale for intellectual property laws is to somehow protect
the inventor, author, or creator rights. However, various school of
thought are critical on the "intellectual property" concept and how to
deal with it; indeed, some argue that use of the term "property" in this
context is itself misleading.
