The field of intellectual property (typically referred to as IP) is one that continues its rapid growth. Just a few years ago, individuals who identifi ed themselves as practitioners in the fi eld of intellectual property were met with blank stares. Now IP professionals are in constant demand, and it is a rare issue of any legal newspaper that does not include advertisements for IP practitioners. Many experts believe this rapid growth can be attributed to the spread of computer and communications technologies throughout the world. Refl ecting this, technologyrelated legislation is continually introduced in Congress. Trademark and patent applications fi led at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Offi ce continue to grow.
Similarly, there is increased emphasis on the need to enhance protection of written materials, including computer software, through copyright registration. Today’s competitive businesses recognize that nearly 80 percent of their value can lie in their intellectual property. With increased technology and global comm unication come greater challenges to protect intellectual property. Misappropriation or infringement of valuable proprietary information is a keystroke away. Thus, companies and law firms value the expertise of IP professionals who can assist in adopting strategies to ensure IP assets are fully protected.
