Why is intellectual property so important? In the United States, 97% of all employment comes from small businesses. If we just count the employers with 20 or less employees, it is 89% of all employment in this country. Small businesses only exist because of their intellectual property. There are four basic intellectual property rights: Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and Trade Secrets. Each property right protects certain types of creations of the mind.
