Intellectual property

Understand:

  • intellectual property issues relating to business and documentation in particular (especially in relation to copyright, trademarking and branding)
  • the concept of plagiarism – it’s too easy to copy and paste these days and not give a second thought about where the information or image came from
  • that care must be exercised to ensure that any material is properly attributed to the work’s creator and that the attribution is clear and prominent.
