What are intellectual property rights?

Intellectual property refers to the exclusive rights granted by the State over the
creations of the human intellect, in particular, inventions, literary and artistic works,
and distinctive signs and designs used in commerce. Intellectual property is divided
into two main categories: industrial property rights , which include patents, utility
models, trademarks, industrial designs, trade secrets, plant varieties and
geographical indications; and copyright and related rights , which are related to
literary and artistic works.
