R&D is accelerating in a variety of fields, including computer science such as artificial intelligence (AI), data science, healthcare such as medicine, life science, and energy revolution such as carbon neutral. The results of R&D are becoming the core of management as intellectual property rights.
For the intellectual property management strategies utilizing intellectual property rights, legal strategies in various legal fields such as the Anti-Monopoly Law, the Unfair Competition Prevention Law, the Personal Information Protection Law, and the Contract Law for Licenses have become important in addition to the intellectual property laws such as the Patent Law and the Copyright Law.
For this reason, intellectual property management strategies require the full use of laws as an offensive and defensive weapon in order to promote business.
