Computers have had a significant impact on intellectual property law. From patentability of computer-implemented inventions to use of trademarks on the Internet, few areas of intellectual property law are evolving faster than those related to computers. Given the dynamic nature of the law in this field, it is key to be advised by knowledgeable lawyers who are specialists in this field.
