At the heart of a global economy is an increasing dependence on intellectual property asset protection. Such protection may be in the form of patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or contract law. Contrary to common belief, whether a small or large business, protecting your idea or assets through patent or trademark registration or contract is vital to the competitiveness or outright survival of your business, especially if you are an individual, small business owner or starting a small business.
