I know Star Trek is set in a post-scarcity economy based partly on replicator technology, which makes the expensive items of today (e.g., fashionable clothes, fast cars, beautiful furniture) accessible to anyone who wants them.
But reputation is often built on being able to claim authorship whether of a book, song, or invention or other creation. (Note I am not talking about royalties or licensing fees, but reputation.) People who despise material goods will still value reputation.
Is there any mention or even indication of how the Federation protects or attributes intellectual property, not necessarily as a source of income, but of reputation?
This question is related to, but not a duplicate of, In Star Trek (TNG), does "original art" even mean anything?. This question asks about the benefits, even if intangible, that accrue to the creator of something popular or useful; the earlier question refers to art exclusively, and is framed from the point of view of the possessor of an art object.
