Intellectual property covers a range of legal issues, including trademark, patent and copyright protection. And in the digital age, the scope and importance of intellectual property law has grown significantly.
Technology is perpetually evolving, and IP law is forced to constantly adapt to changes. That usually means legislation typically lags behind, which often challenges courts to find applicable precedent.
