1. What is intellectual property or IP?
The Wikipedia defines intellectual property or IP as "an umbrella term for various legal entitlements which attach to certain names, written and recorded media, and inventions. The holders of these legal entitlements are generally entitled to exercise various exclusive rights in relation to the subject matter of the IP". IPSuperMarket.com specifically deals in software intellectual assets.
2. How will my idea/material benefit from IP?
Think of the world as a giant collaborative network. Regardless of the size of your business, you can use intellectual property developed by others to accelerate your time to market and save costs.
3. How do I enforce my rights?
While inventors can take out patents on their products, intellectual property creators have it less easy.
