The Importance of Intellectual Property LawJuly 23, 2010
Famous inventors who have led the way in developing some of the world’s most ground-breaking inventions and amazing explorations all have something in common—they received credit for their inventions, concepts or ideas.
Invention is born from a creative process that involves thinking with the imagination and envisioning what is possible beyond the realms of what already exists. Transforming these thoughts and concepts into reality not only takes genius and ingenuity but also a lot of courage and plenty of hard work.
Throughout history the most valuable benchmarks in science, medicine and technology have come from the revolutionary ideas, creativity and perseverance of our great inventors. From Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Graham Bell to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak who brought the world the first personal computer, invention is mankind’s most valuable commodity.
Each inventor knows it takes more than creativity to bring an idea to life. It takes time, effort and often times as many failures as it does successes. This process needs to be safeguarded to make developing an innovative idea or new concept worth while for generations to come. Intellectual property lawyers realize the importance of new innovations and provide those individuals who invent them with the protection they need to keep their ideas safe.
Intellectual property is considered under the law to include a variety of creations of the mind for which property rights are afforded.
Under intellectual property law owners are given rights to the intangible assets that encompass written work, musical composition, literature, artistic creations, discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols and designs.
The most common types of intellectual property include trademarks, patent, industrial design rights, copyrights and trade secrets.
