Sure you can and I do. IP is

Sure you can and I do. IP is a product of the mind that has value when manifested by some physical representation of it. That's IP which in our world we call patents, copyrights and trademarks.

Property is an abstraction by definition. It can be whatever we want it to be as inscribed in law. Humans were property at one time. Animals are property today. "Property" is a device used for the sake of creating a more civil and just society. And IP fulfills that purpose too.
