Intellectual Property


Link to the World Intellectual Property Organization: http://www.wipo.int/portal/index.html.en (WIPO was established in 1967) has great definitions on what is an IP, understanding patent, trademarks and copyrights and other resources on this topic.

Microsoft has a website on Digital Citizenship and Creative Content. It is a curriculum program educators can sign up for that teaches students, grades 8-12, the importances of IP. It also has a great Q/A page: http://ipreducation.com/FAQ.aspx

This video is from a lecture in UC Berkeley on IP & Search (Internet), with examples of court cases on trademark issues and copyright laws. It's about 50 mins. long but pretty interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxLTUZCudcw
