Intellectual property law has rapidly developed from being an area of niche legal interest discussed amongst specialised practitioners to a highly mediatised area of debate amongst a wide range of people. From legislative battles over the future of patents to mass action and protests over copyright reform, everyone appears to have an opinion on aspects of intellectual property law and policy. Technological developments also pose significant challenges to the application and enforcement of intellectual property rights. For instance, 3D printing technology is enabling mass infringement of design rights, patents and trade marks. The digital environment constantly challenges the application of intellectual property law.
