Law Pundits - Certified Intellectual Property Law Analyst (CIPLA)
Innovation and originality have great potential and value. Whatever line of activity you are engaged in, future success depends on them. The last few years have seen intellectual property rights become an issue of general interest: the smart phone "patent wars", the introduction of digital rights management (DRM) and the rise of generic pharmaceuticals and open-source software are just some examples that have been in the public eye.
Protecting your intellectual rights appropriately should be a top priority. Yet too many people embark on their chosen professions without even a basic awareness of intellectual property.
Intellectual Property is also a valuable asset similar to real property; movable or immovable. The fact that intellectual property theft can happen much faster than that of real property calls for Intellectual Property Laws that determine the ownership and rights over intellectual property, transfer and acquisition of such rights and penalties for infringing such rights.
