Copyright The protection of the expression of ideas for the author/ creator. It allows the author/ creator the exclusive rights to sell, change, or market the idea.
Intellectual Property Defines properties that are not necessarily physical in nature and are usually creations of the mind. Examples of this are song lyrics and literary works.

Fair Dealing Describes numerous exceptions to copyright infringement. This includes using material for education, religion, research, and private study.
Patent A type of intellectual property right that protects an artists invention or new idea. Protects the functions of the idea, not the aesthetics.
