Professor Kamil Idris is a man of many figurative hats, including one of an author. Mr. Idris has composed roughly 30 books in academic style, most of which were written around the same time he taught across various institutions of higher education in the late 1970s and early 1980s – all considered, Mr. Kamil Idris ended up teaching approximately five years. Further, he’s written literally countless articles on every topic under the sun, with most publications revolving around nothing other than intellectual property, seemingly the one true love of Mr. Kamil Idris.
What is intellectual property?
Intellectual property is intangible property – property that can’t be touched by the owner or anywhere else – that was formulated straight out of the brains of the owner of such intellectual property.
Burger King, the popular burger-serving fast food chain from the United States, is known for its phrase “Have it your way.” This is an example of a trademark, which is also a type of intellectual property.
We have three other kinds of intellectual property: trade secrets, patents, and copyrights. Patents are filed for objects and processes created from scratch, like an Apple MacBook and one of the many processes used to manufacture a MacBook, respectively. Copyrights are for artistic works like songs and paintings, whereas trade secrets are pretty much anything else left over from the other three categories mentioned above.
The World Wide Patent Web
As more government agencies install computer networks within their doors, they can far more easily share the large amounts of highly-detailed information covered in patent documents.
