Actually, here are two links with professional definitions:

In short, the major types of IP are:
* Copyrights
* Trademarks
* Patents
* Trade Secrets

So, IP is not necessarily:
- Ideas in your head, unless you can protect them with patents or trade 
secrets. The fuzzier your idea is, the less likely.
- Your "style" or something similar. Others can imitate you, but you can 
still diss them for not coming up with something original :-)
