Intelectual Property after a divorce

What  occurs in the case of a divorce-related with the Intellectual Property rights?

It is common in divorce proceedings to discussed on the property of real estates or other tangible assets; nevertheless it is very frequent to forget to settle on IP rights, understood as Copyrights, Trademarks, Inventions and others, especiallyin Latin American countries.

It is difficult to imagine how an intangible asset is capable of becoming a community property, but let's consider the following:

TRADEMARK: A famous Trademark may be worth much more than all other assets of its owner, even more than all the inventory a company posses..

PATENTS: There are Patents that are worth millions of dollars and that are subject of litigation in case of a divorce.
