The world of consumer products is constantly expanding and evolving as the life cycle of many consumer products is short. There is a constant effort to develop better consumer products that are more efficient, less expensive, and more entertaining. The array of product choices available online and in stores has created fierce competition for consumer loyalty and it is important to maximize return on investment in these short lifecycle products. Having a strong intellectual property plan is not only key to preventing unfettered copying but also to avoiding patent infringement and risking an injunction that could keep you from selling a product in which you heavily invested.
