Patents are a subset of the larger field of law known as intellectual property law. At its most basic level, intellectual property is the broad term applied to the things that "spring" from a person's mind. These can include, among other things, new drugs, new methods of doing business, computer software, a trademark or logo used to sell a product, a song, a play or a new financial product.
