1 comment
Intellectual property means the creations of the human mind: inventions, literary and artistic works, symbols, names and images used for commercial purposes. From a legal point of view, intellectual property is protected, for example, by patents, copyright and trademarks, what allows people to become famous or get the financial benefit from the things they invented or created.
Establishing the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public, the intellectual property system contributes to the creation of the conditions for the prosperity of creativity and innovations.If earlier there has been the intellectual property of the things that were material, nowadays we have more cases of intellectual property violations because of the Internet. Works in electronic form, available in the digital network can be perceived by an unlimited range of users at any time at the request of each of them. The works that have an open access, once digitized and uploaded to the Internet, are an easy prey for copyright infringers. It is very dangerous, to create anything and leave it in the world network as you have to be aware of your own creations being assigned by someone else.

It is obvious that individual right holders are not able to track the spread of protected objects in digital networks and their use while creating the multimedia products. The right holders are practically deprived of the opportunity to defend their rights in the digital environment in the same ways as in the normal use of copyrighted objects. So, what should a right holder do in order to protect the works of his own creation and leave himself the author of the idea? Here are some ways of protecting the intellectual property
in the Internet.

It is possible, to protect the rights of your intellectual property in the form of a brand name, you have to register the trademark.
