Intellectual Property(IP) is not a tangible asset unlike any other physical property. It originates within the human mind involving human intellect. However, it can be visible in variety of forms: Industrial Property & Copyright. Industrial Property is sub-categorized as: inventions(Patents); symbols, names, images (Marks or Trademarks); Two dimensional or three dimensional pictures, drawings etc, (Industrial Designs) and literary and artistic works (Copyright).
Intellectual Property Law provides protection for Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) against illegal use (infringements) to safeguard the interests of the owner and the general consumer as well.
What are Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs)?
Once the owners' rights are protected, in turn, the interests of the general consumer too are protected.
Intellectual Property Laws contain provisions to own such creations by the respective owners (in a similar way that people own any other physical property) for a specific period of time and the owner or his authorized representative may (within that specific period) use and/or exploit such property in any way they like in terms of the the Laws in force.
Therefore nobody can infringe the rights conferred by law to the owner/s of Intellectual Property(IP) if such property is duly registered at the Intellectual Property Office.
However, in terms of the current law in Sri Lanka, the literary and artistic work(Copyright) does not need registration.
