Intellectual property laws

​​What is intellectual property?

Intellectual property is the economic model which ensures that the original creators of work (for example, designs, literary works, music, films, patents or trademarks) benefit fairly from it. 

This acts as an incentive for people to continue to invest in creating such work.
