Protection of innovation and branding becomes relatively more difficult as their importance increases in today’s world. Every prominent trademark or innovation, which is the brain child of a visionary who has invested heavily in the venture, is under risk.

Thus, the brand or product becomes vulnerable to imitation as soon as it hits the market after a heap of investment.
