Most of the time when companies speak to the press about others “stealing their Intellectual Property” there is no indication if they are referring to copyright, Trademark, patent, or a whimsical feeling that they thought of something first. Using a loaded word like property is counter productive to the whole discussion of issues that should be treated separately.
