You can say that copyright, trademark, and patent are all artificial constructs of property, and that they are all intangible, but that's about it.

You can't have meaningful discussion about the purpose, goals, or policy in such abstract terms. The term "Intellectual Property" only serves to obfuscate and confuse.

Anyone who wants meaningful discussion should reject the term and discuss the three distinct issues at hand.
