The term “intellectual property” refers collectively to intangible property such as patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets, and it shares many of the characteristics associated with tangible, personal property. Intellectual property can be bought, sold, licensed, or given away like real property. In the same way, intellectual property can also be pirated. IPR piracy has increased in recent years, and it involves the production and sale of counterfeit versions of everything from clothes and batteries to compact discs, software, auto parts, and medicines.
