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. (Source: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/intellectual-property)
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.
