The process of creating intellectual property rights can be a considerable investment in both time and money for the proprietors of these rights. Developing, testing, researching and writing, as well as marketing are time consuming tasks necessary for dealing with intellectual property rights. Therefore, the labor and funds spent in obtaining intellectual property rights will only amount to a sound investment if those rights are enforced against infringers. Trademark infringement, copyright infringement, and other violations of intellectual property rights are tortuous acts committed by people and businesses eager to capitalize on the investment of successful intellectual property owners. Such acts diminish the value of intellectual property rights, business profits, and good will. Owners of intellectual property act negligently if they do not enforce their statutory rights as enforcements against infringement which can result in partial or total nullity of the use of that patent.
