However, registration is not required. The owner of a common law trademark may also file suit, but an unregistered mark may be protectable only within the geographical area within which it has been used or in geographical areas into which it may be reasonably expected to expand.\n","7":"Rights derived from any original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work can be registered from the moment this work is created. \n","2":"You are about to journey into the world of IP. The following presentation will introduce you to the strategic value of IP. You will learn about the five main types of intellectual property rights which play a key role in supporting innovation and productivity by delivering and granting quality \n","3":"Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, and symbols, names, images, and designs used in commerce.\nIP is divided into two categories:  Industrial property, which includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source; and Copyright, which includes literary and artistic works such as novels, poems and plays, films, musical works, artistic works such as drawings, paintings, photographs and sculptures, and architectural designs.\nAlthough many of the legal principles governing intellectual property have evolved over centuries, it was not until the 19th century that the term intellectual property began to be used, and not until the late 20th century that it became commonplace in the United States.[2] The British Statute of Anne 1710 and the Statute of Monopolies 1623 are now seen as the origin of copyright and patent law respectively.\n","10":"IP plays an important role in facilitating the process of taking innovative technology to the market place. At the same time, IP plays a major role in enhancing competitiveness of technology-based enterprises, whether such enterprises are commercializing new or improved products or providing service on the basis of a new or improved technology. Intellectual property rights can be used effectively  to facilitate successful innovation. Innovative technologies stand a better chance of successfully reaching the marketplace if IP is used strategically.\n"}
