WHAT IS INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY
The industrial property is one of the two branches of the intellectual property (the other one being the copyright). It’s value is not determined by a mass value, but by an information value: the mass value (e.g. the value of a blank CD) is actually negligible compared to the value of the information.
Industrial property includes
- Technical solutions protected by patents and utility models
- Protection of products appearance protected by industrial designs
- Denomination rights represented by trademarks, appellations of origin or geographic denominations
Protection of all industrial property rights is valid only within a specific territory, for which the right had been granted.
By filing the application, the applicant acquires the priority right before any and all later applicants (priority date).
