Intellectual Property Rights (IPR)
Intellectual Property Rights
Intellectual property covers two basic areas: industrial property (inventions, patents, plants’ varieties, models and industrial designs, trademarks and brands, topographies of integrated circuits) and copyright (literary, dramatic and musical works, choreographic works, audiovisual works, painting works, sculpture and graphic works, urban architecture and garden design, applied art works, photographic works, maps, translations, software, etc.). In the Republic of Moldova, the legal protection of industrial property devices are insured on the ground of their registration at the State Agency on Industrial Property Protection (AGEPI) and copyright protection is enjoyed under the Copyright Law.
