Different forms of right (e.g copyright) protect different kinds of
intellectual property. Assess these different rights and their
appropriateness to any UK business relyng on IT.

While I'd be more than willing to answer the question (despite the
homework-esque nature 😉 I'm curious as to your last sentence, "and
their appropriateness to any UK business relying on IT"
Part of the problem stems from the fact that different forms if IP
concern different elements — for instance, copyright deals with
written works, artistic endeavors and the like, and patents primarily
deal with design (as in invention). With regards to -any- UK business
relying on IT, they may be able to encorporate -all- elements of
intellectual property protections. In other words, its a wash.
Question for you: What -type- of industry are you considering? For
instance, a firm priding itself on security or intellectual assets,
will have a very different need than a firm who actively invents
products, or one who publishes materials online.
