Intellectual property, as the title of this article says, has an atypical distribution among the world's population. Thus, the population distribution pyramid of this type of property resembles the shape of an inverted flat pushpin.

At the base we have a large population cluster that does not possess any type of intellectual property. Then there is a constant thin line that corresponds to all those individuals or organizations, whether commercial or not, that have one interesting intellectual property (for example all those composers who have a well-known song, or writers of a single work, etc).

And at the tip of the pushpin, from where the shape of the pushpin begins to be conical, we have a select group of personalities or institutions, whether mercantilist or not, and whose rights are still reserved or are in the public domain already, which do not they exceed the number of fingers of a person, who have a vast amount of intellectual property, either in their field (such as the musician Beethoven or the writer Hans Christian Andersen) or in several, such as the company that founded film producer Walt Disney.

Thus, we talk about Shakespeare, Cervantes, those mentioned, and someone else out there who we may have forgotten. We must also include in this list the writer of these lines, which by pure journalistic decency will not be mentioned explicitly, but is implicitly named in this way.

Thus, it is de facto that intellectual property is difficult to protect because ordinary people are not affected, that is, they do not possess any type of intellectual property. Not even politicians, those people who strive to fix the world and who do not always get it (because sometimes they strive to the contrary), have a lot of intellectual property, at most a book of memories that being rehearsed cannot even be considered as literary.

Anyway, that's how things are at the intellectual property level in the world; "some so much and others so little", as the Spanish saying goes.
