“The expression industrial property includes trademarks and other distinctive signs, geographical indications, appellations of origin, designs, inventions, utility models, topographies of semiconductor products, confidential business information and new plant varieties.”

The matter finds regulation at the national, European and international levels in agreements (TRIPS) and treaties that aim to harmonize domestic laws that guarantee minimum standards for the protection of industrial property.
