Most often confusion arises over abandonment of property easements, restrictions, water rights, and mineral rights: that is because, in most cases, mere non-use is not sufficient evidence to show abandonment of such rights. On the other hand, if someone invents and creates something and does not attempt to apply for patent and copyright protection; and allows others to use the invention or creation for public use, then the right to patent or copyright is likely to have been abandoned.
