What is Intellectual Property Infringement ?

Intellectual Property (IP) infringement involves using another's material, for example a copyright or trademark, without the permission of the IP owner. These acts can include the unauthorized reproduction, distribution, preparation of derivative works, public performance, or display of that material. The infringement does not need to be for monetary gain to be problematic, just without permission. Examples of misuse of IEEE IP would include unauthorized posting of conference or journal papers, reselling of standards, or unauthorized use of the IEEE name or logo.


IEEE has a strict policy to keep all information about you confidential and will not disclose your information unless required by law.
