What Are Proprietary Rights?

Proprietary rights, also known as property rights, are the theoretical or legal rights that an entity has to own property, whether tangible or intangible.

How to Patent a Logo

While you can learn how to patent an idea, logos cannot be patented because the term patent describes ownership that protects inventions.
