Importance of intellectual property law

Increased globalisation in a competitive commercial world demands absolute clarity on access and ownership of new ideas. South-east Asia has seen a progressively active and robust approach in relation to intellectual property law and issues.  This key aspect of law, and the practice thereof, has to keep pace with changes in technology, science and the creative industries.  Intellectual property is at the heart of many a successful business as companies begin to recognise the critical importance of their intellectual property rights and assets, and of conscientiously protecting them.
