Intellectual property is the right to own a certain entity for the work of creative thought, i.e. literary and artistic works, symbols, names, pictures, designs and industrial drawings, which are composed, produced or otherwise transferred to its ownership later.
Intellectual property is divided into two categories: industrial property, which includes inventions “Patents”, trademarks, industrial designs and distinctive signs of origin (geographical indications and origin names) on one hand, and the copyright that includes literary and artistic works such as novels, poems, plays, films, music, drawings, paintings.
