Organizations in the intellectual property (IP) market offer IP rights management services to organizations as well as private individuals such as artists, designers, and authors. Intellectual rights protection allows organizations and individuals alike to innovate freely, without fear of their proprietary ideas being monetized by others. But on the flip side, the intellectual property rights market faces loss of revenues because of the sheer costs associated with obtaining licenses, copyrights and designs - all of which are intellectual property.
Intellectual property has implications for private and public entities, as both strive to maintain a balanced patent system that can further be used for commercializing a technology/know-how or restricting its widespread use. However, it is now amply evident that intellectual property rights are a powerful tool for securing financial or takeover deals, and during negotiations. The intellectual property market also features law firms that advise their clients on protecting and using their intellectual property in compliance with the regulatory mandates in different regions of the world.

The act is aimed at enhancing product quality by collecting third party patent-related information and registering it with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
