Intellectual Property consists of personal and proprietary rights which give the holder the complete disposal and the exclusive right for exploiting the work.

Original literary, artistic or scientific creations expressed by any means or media, currently known or invented in the future may be protected by intellectual property.

Examples of these works are: books, leaflets, conferences, musical compositions, theatre plays, audiovisual works, illustrations, maps, photographic works, computer programs, translations, websites, databases, etc.

The so-called copyright appears at the time of creating the work, and there are several ways to protect it: registering it at the Intellectual Property Registry, by legal deposit or notary filing, by means of private contracts or confidentiality agreements, etc.

We offer you advice in Intellectual Property, performing studies in order to determine the best protection, and carrying out the processes for such protection.

Industrial Property and Intellectual Property

We must point out what is protected by Intellectual Property and what is protected by Industrial Property, since we may sometimes find creations which may apparently be protected in both ways.

Industrial Property protects all creations related to industry, whereas Intellectual Property is used for protecting creations of the mind which express the author's personality, since these are unique creations, and are not the result of industrial or mass production.

Therefore, let's say that an adornment's design is created; but if this adornment must be marketed, its design will have to be protected by those means provided for by Industrial Property, that is, an industrial design.

Our legal research will help you determine which protection matches your creation, helping you protect it in a suitable way.
