Intellectual property gives the author, inventor or holder of knowledge the power to protect their rights.

propriedade intelectual

Intellectual property gives the author, inventor and/or owner of the protected knowledge the power to protect their rights, and can, for example, prohibit third parties from producing, using, selling or importing their invention, as well as preventing the reproduction or imitation of their trademark, in addition to guaranteeing exclusivity to the owner of the creation [1] (ARAÚJO; BARBOSA; QUEIROGA; ALVES, 2010).

It is divided into three main groups, which include copyright, industrial property and sui generis protection.

Copyright is subdivided into author's rights, related rights and computer programs. Industrial property covers trademarks, patents, industrial designs, geographical indications, industrial secrets and the repression of unfair competition.

Finally, sui generis protection includes integrated circuit topography, cultivars and traditional knowledge [2] (JUNGMANN; BONETTI, 2010).
