Intellectual property rights

The four main types of intellectual property rights are patents, trademark protection, design protection and copyright. These forms of protection have come about in order to encourage development by giving innovators and creators a special right to use their works.

Inventions in your daily life

Complex, technical solutions or simple, clever ideas. Read about everything from horseshoes to systems for pilots.
Examples of patents

Signs in your surroundings

Examples of trademarks

Appearance is protected

Even an appearance can be protected. Here you can read about everything from the design of sweets to truck design.
Examples of designs

Piracy and other infringement

In order for innovators to invest in and realize their ideas, it is essential that they can cover their development and investment costs. As soon as there is a successful product, pirated copies unfortunately appear on the market.
