When goods are illegally copied, or music and films are pirated, it really represents the stealing or theft of someone elses property.
Whether if be unique designs, trade marks or a copyright work it all comes under the banner of intellectual property, or IP for short.
This year our partners at the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) have launched a new educational resource designed to help anyone working with young people. An understanding of IP is important for people in lots of different careers.
A new website, developed with the creators of Wallace and Gromit, provides a platform to explore learning resources on protecting creativity and innovation. Whether it be an amazing invention, machine or medicine; a book, song or work of art; a business name or product design.
