Topics have been chosen and organized on this site considering who approaches this world for the first time, and it is the result of a long-term experience in harness with the inventors and companies committed to innovation.

The patent is a judicial mechanism that grants the sole right of producing and trading an invention in a specified country. The patent is granted for new commodities or for manufacturing systems, in some cases even for the software.
By registering a trademark you can be the sole and exclusive user of a name and/or logo to differentiate a product or a service, preventing others to make use of that same sign. The trademark holds an importance of the highest relevance in the industry’s strategies.
The design can protect the form of a product or a decorative drawing to be applied to the product itself. The design refers to furniture supplies, motor vehicles, household goods and any other items. It grants the right of protection even for those products that, by not being innovative from a technical point of view, could not otherwise be protected.
The safeguard offered by the law concerning the author’s rights, improperly known as copyright, is reserved to works of a creative nature, such as books, songs, drawings, but also staging productions, creative artistic works, photographs and paintings.
Protection of the software
Mainly the law on copyright, which shields the programme in the same way as it has been written by his author, can safeguard the software. Sometimes, if it generates a “technical effect”, this can also be patented, thus protecting the diagram of flow and performance.
