Intellectual Property (IE) law covers the topic of ownership of materials and works by people and organizations. This area of law is highly-sought after, especially by businesses who wish to protect their unique developments and designs. Although intellectual property law is also applicable for the protection of works by individuals.
For businesses, the subject area is crucial for the protection of trademarks, product designs, patents, brand image, and other copyrighted material. For individuals, the topic can cover many aspects of personal works, such as written materials (e.g. books and articles), music scores, film productions, web designs, and more.
