Intellectual property (IP) protection is absolutely critical for protecting a company's proprietary designs, processes, and inventions that, if leaked to competitors or made public, could ruin a company's market advantage and reputation or lead to costly litigation. Engineers are often on the front line of innovation. As consultants, they also share intimate details of their clients' designs, materials, products, and processeshighly confidential work. Engineers, then, are professional innovators who work in the realm of industrial property and are often the first involved in creating a proprietary design or invention.
