Intellectual Property is a collective term.... actually IP is not the ownership of ideas as you cannot own an idea... you can own the implementation of that idea.

IP can be copyright, trademarks, and patents. Obviously patents are a very strong measure of IP. Copyright can be owned on publishable works, with works being music, written works such as books, documents, etc., and software. Trademarks protect your brand name, etc.

Any software which you guys produce should be clearly outlined in a contract as to who owns the IP. It is vitally important.

If you would like I can tell you a little story of why its important.

yeap, somebody (or an entity) even claims copyright patent to the hyperlink. British Telecom (BT), which in 2002 said it had discovered that it owns the U.S. patent for the invention of the hyperlink technology used on the Internet, has sued Prodigy Communications for copyright infringement. More

That's IP
