My Case

Ip, intellectual property. I don’t know where I stand on Ip. On one hand trademarks, copyrights, and patents are there to protect creators and companies who own the IP.  It assures people that their creations can be copied without their permission. This essentially locks down that idea. Leaving it unable to be developed further. Ip is a confusing topic and by reading through and researching both sides have valid claims that I can empathize with.
