There are four main types of intellectual property: copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets. A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design that distinguishes the source of the goods or services of one business from its competitors. A trade secret is any information that is secret, i.e., not commonly known or available to the public, has economic value because it is a secret and is subject to reasonable efforts to maintain its secrecy. We know protecting intellectual property like trademarks and trade secrets is vital to commercial success.
