Patents

A patent gives its holder the right to prevent others from using or exploiting the patented invention in the territory where the patent is valid. A patent also contributes to valorizing R&D efforts, such as by generating revenues through licensing or sales of patent rights, or by attracting investors.

Trademarks

A trademark is a sign such as a name, a logo, a combination of letters and/or numbers, a slogan, a colour or a combination of colours, a sound, the shape of a product or its packaging, or any other symbol. This sign is used to distinguish a company's products or services from those of his competitors.

Designs

A design is a protection that applies to a product's external features, i.e. its shape, lines, contours, colours, texture, material or ornamentation. A design can be three-dimensional (the shape of a car, a mobile phone, a couch, a vase) or two-dimensional (a pattern, a drawing).

Copyright

A copyright is a protection given to any original literary, scientific and artistic works, irrespective of their medium, such as books, brochures and other written works, conferences and musical compositions. Computer programs can also be copyrighted.

Domain names

A domain name is an identification string defining a location on the Internet. The website linked to a domain name is the main gateway to a company. Since the introduction of a high number of new gTLDs, owners of trademarks and other IP rights are faced with new challenges.

Supplementary Protection Certificates

A supplementary protection certificate is an intellectual property right that extends, for a period of up to five years, the patent protection duration for a human or veterinary medicinal requiring marketing authorisation.

Plant breeder's rights

A plant breeder's right (PBR) protects a new plant variety of any botanical genus or species, regardless of whether it has been obtained by controlled sexual crossing and subsequent selection or by genetic engineering..
