Why do we have Intellectual and Industrial Property Law?
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) classifies intellectual property rights under two main titles. Rights related to the works of science, literature, and art are referred to the intellectual rights of owners; rights of inventions, designs, brands and geographical signs, etc. are referred to industrial rights. The artists who interpret the works, the producers of the audio-video records and the rights of the radio and television organizations on the works are called the rights related to the rights of the owners. The protection of the creations of mind is provided by various legal regulations according to the way of creating the idea. Some creations of mind are protected by a single law, others by more than one laws, with documents or naturally.
