In the future, an indispensable attribute to keeping up with market competition is intellectual property. If we obtain a patent for an invention or a design, we will have the right to prevent others from using such invention or design, or grant the right of use to make profits in the whole market.

Few people truly understand the intellectual property: What is the difference between free use and patent license? Why do we need the patent system? Is it designed for protecting my monopoly of product? Can I utilize or sell my product freely? Should we grant our competitors the right to use our patent?
