The product of intellectual property is around all of us in our day to day lives. In fact, it is so pervasive that most of us would not give it a second thought. From the latest high definition panels and the patented technology incorporated within, to patented pharmaceutical products, from the look of the latest cellular phone handsets, to the trade marks or brands on clothing; these are but a few examples of the product of intellectual property.
