Well, certainly in the UK, there are laws passed pertaining to 'Intellectual
Property' - that is the umbrella under which the things you mention fit. For
example, finance bills often refer to Intellectual Property. White papers
have been published on the intellectual property system ("Our competitive
future: Building the knowledge drived economy" , 1998, for example).

Certainly it is applicable to talk of Intellectual Property, at least in the
UK, because it has meaningful legal connotations.
