ABSTRACT
Intellectual property rights include trademarks, brand names, designs, copyright and patents. They are being given importance by many companies, such that some are even writing the value of their brands into their accounts. However, many other enterprises lose considerable value because of their failure to register inventions and their failure to enforce their intellectual property rights. The need to ensure that their procedures are sufficiently effective so that new inventions are passed to patent agents promptly and infringement of rights are reported to their intellectual property lawyers.
