It is certainly not hard to understand the dire need for strong legal protections to attach to the inventions and other creations of scientists, researchers, authors, musicians, artists and other persons whose intellectual capital is applied in ways that make the world better.

And, indeed, it is flatly impossible to see how the world could progress in materially important ways without the contributions of creative thinkers in virtually all realms of endeavor.

It is hard to imagine a medical industry without consistently enhanced technological tools that aid diagnostic assessments, for example. What if safety enhancements stopped being made for motor vehicles? What if exciting new research summarily ceased in climactic studies, meteorology, earthquake detection, next-stage computer applications and other fields?

The reason that so many smart people diligently apply themselves in ways that benefit mankind is at least partially attributable to their appreciation that their creative genius is acknowledged and protected through stringent intellectual property laws.

Put another way: The urge to create is fueled in part by knowledge that what is created will be safeguarded for a period of time from theft and outright piracy committed by third parties. Intellectual property law enforcement provides requisite assurances that an inventor can recoup his or her research costs and profit from personal toil.

When protection lacks, the impetus that drives invention is understandably dulled.

That realization is implicit in a recent report issued by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative chastising a number of countries where pirating and other unlawful acts aimed at stealing intellectual property are alleged to occur at a magnitude that costs American inventors billions of dollars each year.

The report especially singles out China, with property theft reportedly costing American inventors and companies approximately $300 billion in a recent year, and India, where counterfeiting goods is estimated to siphon nearly $12 billion annually from their actual creators.

Stealing from inventors is an ongoing problem of daunting magnitude and with sobering repercussions for continued inventions in important areas.

An individual or company with questions or concerning relating to the protection of intellectual property can obtain candid and confidential answers, coupled with diligent legal representation, from a proven patent law attorney.
