"UnIntellectual Property (or UnIP, a term coined by the publisher of this blog and used throughout it) is the opposite of intellectual property. Whereas intellectual property typically affords the owner exclusive rights, unintellectual property affords no one owner exclusive rights. This blog, UnIntellectualProperty.com, highlights instances where an owner attempted to claim exclusive intellectual property rights in a trademark, copyright, or trade secret (and to a lesser extent patent) only to have a court of law, or other authority, declare no intellectual property rights exists."
