Intellectual property is among the practice areas which have high career growth. It is defined as a creative work or invention produced by human creativity which is protected from unauthorized use by others with the help of IPR law. It includes manuscripts, songs, logo designs, mobile applications, or even proprietary knowledge like the formula for a soft drink etc. All these are examples of intellectual property (IPR). IP is an individual's or a company's most valuable asset which is protected by hiring IP specialists like Intellectual property attorneys, Patent agents, Patent analysts etc.
