Intellectual Property

What is Intellectual Property:

It is all that the human mind produces creative ideas, including innovations, inventions, literary and artistic works, as well as symbols, names, images, designs, and be of commercial value and can be protected from imitation or infringement, as they are considered intangible rights.  It aims to protect and prevent others from exploiting the intellectual output without the author's permission.

 

Intellectual Property categories:

Industrial property Includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, trademarks (designs), geographical data and software.

 Copyright: Includes literary and artistic works such as novels, poems, plays, musical works, as well as works of art (oil paintings, solar images, sculptures and architectural designs). Neighboring copyright rights include the rights of performers in their performances, producers of audio recordings in their recordings and broadcasters in their radio and television programs.

 

Types of Intellectual Property:

Copyright: Copyright is a legal term that describes the rights granted to creators about their literary and artistic works. The copyright covers a wide range of works, from books, music, oil paintings, sculptures and films to software, databases, advertisements, geographical maps and technical drawings.

Patent: Patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention. In general, a patent guarantees the owner the right to decide on a method - or possibility - of the use of third parties for invention. In return, the patent owner provides the public with technical information about the invention in the published patent document.

Trademarks: Trademark is a sign that distinguishes a company's goods or services from the goods or services of other companies. Trademarks are protected by intellectual property laws.

Industrial Designs: Industrial design is the decorative or aesthetic appearance of a piece. The design can consist of stereoscopic elements, such as the shape or surface of the piece, or two-dimensional elements, such as drawings, lines, or colors.

Geographical indicators: Geo-indicator is a reference used for goods with a particular geographical origin and attributes, reputation or characteristics attributed mainly to that origin. For a mark to have the same role as a geographical indicator, you must identify a product as originating from a particular place. Also, the product's characteristics, characteristics or reputation must be mainly attributed to the place of origin. Since the qualities depend on the geographical location of production, there is a close link between the product and the original place of production.
