Intellectual Property in ICT and Digital Media: Market Challenges, Solutions and Business Impact Analysis

NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Intellectual Property in ICT and Digital Media: Market Challenges, Solutions and Business Impact Analysis Overview: Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are intended to protect the legal rights of property to the owner includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, service marks, commercial names, designations etc. A key factor in disputes is not only the issues of validity and infringement but also a determination of commercial value and potential damages. IPR law in the digital arena is intended to safeguard the legal rights of owners to various assets including architectures, platforms, processes, procedures, methods, and the associated commercialization of applications, products, and services.

IPR has become a significant issue within telecom, ICT, and digital media as there are often many overlapping claims from different companies against each other's applications, products, services, infrastructure, and devices. There has been significant litigation recently within wireless communications, especially in the areas of mobile device user interface, feature/functionality, and applications. This report analyzes IPR within this context with emphasis on recent disputes between Apple, Samsung, Yahoo, and Facebook.
