Understanding intellectual property theft in Arizona
Intellectual property is a term referring to a number of distinct creations. Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to intangible "property" such as musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs. Common types of intellectual property rights include copyrights, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights and trade secrets. When you are charged with intellectual property theft, you are accused of stealing, misrepresenting or misusing one of these types of items.
In many cases, intellectual property has a very high financial value, which means the penalties for conviction are correspondingly high. And depending on the nature of the property in question, a conviction could also ruin your professional reputation and future employment prospects.
