Intellectual Property / Audiovisual Law

The essential intellectual property.

Protecting intellectual property is synonymous to technological progress. It affects all business sectors and any entity, whether public or private.

And it also enables protection for creations that cannot be registered as patents, thereby given them exclusive exploitation rights.
