    Industrial Design Rights


    These rights protect the visual design of industrial objects, such as product shapes, patterns, and ornamentation. Industrial design rights prevent others from copying or using the protected design without authorization.

    trademarks


    Trademarks are distinctive signs, symbols, or logos that are used to identify and distinguish goods or services in the marketplace. Trademarks protect brand names and logos and help consumers identify the source of products or services.

    patent


    Patents provide inventors with exclusive rights to their inventions for a limited period, usually 20 years from the date of filing. Patents are typically granted for new, useful, and non-obvious inventions, and they prevent others from making, using, selling, or importing the patented invention without the inventor's permission.

    geographical indications


    Geographical indications are used to identify products originating from a specific region or locality, known for certain qualities, reputation, or characteristics. Examples include Champagne wine and Parmesan cheese.

    plant variety rights

    These rights protect new and distinct plant varieties that have been bred or developed. They grant the exclusive right to produce, sell, and distribute these plant varieties for a specified period.

    utility models

    Similar to patents, utility models protect inventions and innovations, but they are often granted for simpler inventions or improvements. Utility models have shorter terms of protection than patents.

    copyright

    Copyright is a form of protection granted to the authors of original literary, artistic, and intellectual works, such as books, music, paintings, films, and software. Copyright grants the creator the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, perform, and adapt their work for a certain period (typically the creator's lifetime plus 50 to 70 years).

    trade secrets

    Trade secrets refer to confidential business information, such as manufacturing processes, formulas, customer lists, and marketing strategies, that provide a competitive advantage. Unlike patents, trade secrets are not publicly disclosed, and their protection lasts as long as the information remains confidential.
