Explain how the requirements of security, data protection, copyright and intellectual property legislation may affect the production of business documents
Part of my answer:
Intellectual property is the name given for something, for example a document, that is created by someone; it is their intellectual property. A person can only own intellectual property if the document meets all of the requirements for copyright and if it is approved.
Copyright, as found in the 'United Kingdom Copyright, Design and Patents Act, 1988', is part of intellectual property. Once a document is of somebodys intellectual property they can copyright it, which means that it cannot legally be copied by anyone.
