Intellectual property is one of the hottest subjects in the business and the legal community today and there's good reason for that. 40 years ago, the typical American company had about 20% of its assets in intellectual property or intangible assets. Today that number is more like 80%. That means that almost every company in America is dealing in intellectual property every day. It's their biggest asset.
