Intellectual Property: What Is It?
"Intellectual property (IP) is, quite simply, the opposite
of tangible property—it is anything you can't see, touch,
smell or hear and therefore quantify. Intellectual property consists
of copyright, patent, trade-mark and trade secret law."
In this article is a discussion each on the following topics: copyright,
patents, trademarks, industrial design and trade secrets. The last
section will deal with cyberspace and how intellectual property
can and should be protected for your website. To read the full

Tip Of The Month
What Should You Do If Someone Already Owns the Domain Name You
- Buy the name from them
A lot depends on why someone registered the name that you want.
Speculators, sometimes reserve domain names in order to sell them
to the highest bidder. Firms may buy domain names simply because
they want to establish legitimate Web sites or online businesses.
If someone is using a domain name and doesn't want to sell it,
you may have no choice but to choose another name.
- Settle on a different name
- Court Ruling
Sometimes courts have ruled that trademark holders can claim
certain domain names, regardless of whether someone else bought
the name first. If ABC Industries comes across another business
that owns abcindustries.com, for example, it might take action
to seize control of the name. You may or may not be able to claim
a domain name in this manner, depending on the type of name and
how the current owner is using it.
If you can't register a coveted .com domain name, look into registering
your name with a .net or .org extension, or even register it with
a two-letter national extension. For example, you can register a
domain with Canada's .ca extension. Keep in mind that there are
certain Canadian presence requirements in order to use the .ca extension.
For more information, see the Canadian
Internet Registration Authority Web site.
