Nations across the globe have come to realize that IP (Intellectual property) is an essential tool to develop an economy and bring forth social and cultural welfare.Generally, ideas are thought of as being created through the mind but IP is not responsible for protecting bare ideas instead it is the symbolic expression of ideas that require protection. Therefore, a rocket’s design is patented not the rocket’s idea. It is the lake’s painting which is copyrighted and not the lake’s idea. UAE is no different and with complete integrity the nation has formulated its stringent laws and legislations regarding Intellectual property. This report serves as a medium to understand the International and UAE law pertaining to copyright and Intellectual property.

Taking into consideration the complexity lying in the law of intellectual property, it is no doubt that various individuals inclusive of journalists, biz and tech bloggers, authors and even tweeple often confuse the term. According to Tech Terms online, intellectual property refers to intangible ownership and goods of non-physical nature. As intellectual property has an intangible nature, it is even more problematic when protecting it in comparison to other property types(Smarzynska, 2004). This definition is fairly reasonable but in more simplified way, it can be said that Intellectual property (IP) is created through mind(Smarzynska, 2004). However due to the similarities between the discussed domains of different types of properties, there is often a confusion in terms of distinguishing copyrights, patents, trade secrets and Intellectual property. In order to differentiate, this paper will discuss International legislations and UAE legislations inclusive of copyright legislation, Internet Copyright Legislation, Traditional context Infringement and Internet context infringement
