Along with the rapid growth of our high technology industries, the intellectual property plays a significant role as the most important assets and commercial soft power for many large economic entities across the world.
Every skyscraper is built on the ground. As a most important asset, the intellectual property is created and accumulated by our people one day by another in almost every industry around the world. Without proper protection by laws to make the intellectual property right enforceable, the innovation will be slowed and the economic development will also be significantly changed.
In protecting intellectual property, the first step is to build up intellectual property. Without it, the owners can’t conduct commercial use of their intellectual property rights.

In another aspect, the effectiveness and efficiency of the intellecutal property system are operating based on laws and rules of its natural regulations including both the common and the discrepancy.
What's the next to the construction of IP? Commercialization of IP? Monetization of IP? While the construct IP is more or less an independent industry among the morden law service, the next to the IP is never an independent part apart from the other industry, hence the second step of protecting the intellectual property is always deepenly engaged with the other industries.
