Intellectual property (IP) plays an essential role in accelerating the pace of innovation. Patents protect inventions in all fields of technology, trademarks signal the characteristics of products, designs specify how products look and domains identify organizations in the world of Internet. The critical importance of these rights becomes clear when we look at today’s IP landscape.
