Technology invention is an arduous and risky creative process that can result in life changing and global transformation. To incentivise investment in successful and potentially transformational technology solutions, and to reward risk, inventors must be able to seek reasonable return for their efforts. Intellectual Property Rights allow inventors to obtain such reward by creating the opportunity to commercialise their inventions. This is not only a fair way to acknowledge the contribution of the technology into the market, but also encourages continuous investment in further research, thus increasing innovation.
