Intellectual property or industrial property?
Intellectual property refers to a series of rights relating to intangible creations. Industrial property, along with copyright, is one of two areas within the remit of intellectual property.
Industrial property rights give the right-holder the right to forbid others to use his/her technical innovations (patents, plant variety certificates, etc.), graphic elements (designs, models) and distinctive signs (trademarks, trade names, designation of origin, etc.).
