My extra 2 cents on IP law

I must say, intellectual property law isn’t all sweet and pretty. You don’t just protect someone’s story. Sometimes there are unpleasant and petty issues to be deal with, for example: let’s say you create a brand image. Your best friend creates the same image, with slightly different font and change of color. You want to sue her for plagiarizing your brand.

Is this something really worth suing your best friend over?  I mean, after all, you might just receive nominal damages depending on if there was a contract based on your brand or if she pursued a copyrighted before you. These are  challenges, that ought to be considered when entering into IP law because starting out as an IP lawyer the cases may not all seem valid, which is something every lawyer has to think about when choosing a desired field. The way I like to think of it in all types of law, there will be the ‘cry-babies,’ overly sensitive people who think the world is out to get them.

In conclusion, you have to be on the lookout for those folks.
