Original Research

What is intellectual property? A work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc.

 

 

What is public domain? For works created after 1977, the term of copyright is life of the author plus seventy years. However, previous copyright acts had different rules, and those rules will affect the duration of pre-1978 works.

    Citation Forms

    When writing or conducting research, you will be using the MLA format.  MLA uses parenthetical references (instead of footnotes).  If you have any questions, please see a librarian at the help desk for assistance with using the MLA Handbook..
