Intellectual property has always been closely tied to technology. New inventions in the field of science and technology are protected through intellectual property rights, which in turn encourages research and development. The ability to discover, create, manage and protect intangible assets is critical in leveraging the maximum benefit from investments in a knowledge-based competitive environment.
