The course will begin with a discussion of the basic concepts of intellectual property rights and the regulatory framework of this field of law. The principal international agreements on this subject will be examined, as well as their relation to the domestic legal order. This will be followed by discussion of the individual branches of intellectual property rights and the principal rules and concepts of each branch, starting with copyrights to literary works or works of art, covered by Act No. 73/1972, as amended, patent protection of inventions, covered by Act No. 17/1991, as amended, and trade mark law, covered by Act No. 45/1997, as amended, and finally design protection, covered by Act No. 42/2001. Discussions will focus on the rules applicable to the establishment of rights, the term and scope of protection, and international co-operation in these areas.
