All around the world people are paid millions of dollars for research and development and for producing quality work. If the work of such people will be copied and published than the hard work of these producers will be of no use and they will be de motivated. After the realization of this fact (copying and stealing of work) Intellectual property rights was developed to protect the ideas and work of people. IP refers to the creation of inventions that can be in the field of arts, science, literature, designs, symbols, music and images etc. All of these are termed as intellectual property and are protected by a law called intellectual property rights. According to this law patents, copyrights and trademarks are present that give the right to the producers about the protection of their assets (Collin, 2010). Plagiarism is connected with the intellectual property because it is also about the protection of the work of the producer.
