What is intellectual property?

So, what exactly is intellectual property?

Is it discoveries, brands, designs, music, composition, monopolies, exclusivity, art, literature, inventions, words, symbols etc?


Yes! It is all that, and much more. 

With a unique IP right, you get exclusive rights, 

that in turn leads to a competitive edge over your competitors, 

which then leads to success and returns of revenue.

Intellectual Property = Exclusivity through Uniqueness

So, why is IP important? Let's simplify that as well:

Intellectual Property = Creations of the mind

To simplify the concept:

Intellectual property exists in many forms

Inventions  -  Brands  -  Designs  -  Works  -  Websites & many other forms

Intellectual property covers a wide spectrum of areas.


Different types of IP correspond to different forms of protection for your creations.

Patents protect inventions, or quite simply, how things work.

Inventions are a solution to a problem in field of technology.

The word patent originates from the Latin patere, which means “to lay open”.

Patents are a set of exclusive rights granted for a limited period of time, in exchange for full disclosure of the invention to the public.

In addition to patents, Malaysia also allows for utility innovations, essentially a “minor” invention.
