We live, work and play in a world that’s home to billions of people. Upwards of seven billion, as a matter of fact. And many of these great minds have life-changing thoughts and ideas. Some of these innovations become impossible to live become socially disruptive on a global scale and others, like pet exercise toys, may only quietly affect certain market segments. But whether an idea whispers or explodes its way on to the scene, many have potential to become protectable intellectual property.
