Innovation, Global Economy, ingenuity


For over 200 years, the United States has been renowned for the ingenuity of its citizens, such as Franklin, Edison, and Ford. The Government has recognized this ingenuity as a national asset and has developed a code of statutes, known as Intellectual Property Law, enabling its citizens to protect and benefit from their own creativity. In the present global marketplace, these laws are increasingly vital to the competitive success of our country's technology-based economy. Patent law is one part of the larger field of Intellectual Property Law, which also includes copyright, trademark, and trade secret law.
