Description

Intellectual property pertains to the intangible aspects of the mind (Scafaldi, 2001). It refers to creative ideas that have commercial value and may receive the same legal protection of a tangible property right. Often, one thinks of movies, music, software, and pharmaceuticals as being protected by intellectual property laws. Design piracy of apparel is possible within the United States because intellectual property rights do not fully protect clothing design (Magdo, 2000).
