Pedrini & Benedetti patents firm


Copyright is another branch of intellectual property. However, whereas the separation between industrial property and copyright occurs in Italy alone, the two are combined abroad under intellectual property.

Our legal system provides both for separation and diversity of the legal sources.

As mentioned in a passage of the section regarding Industrial design, copyright specifically regards artistic intellectual creations. In addition, a major difference lies in the absence of the need for a rights constitution action.

The major difference between the two branches of intellectual property, industrial property on the one hand (specifically regarding patents and registrations) and copyright on the other (regarding protection of artistic works), lies in the fact that while industrial property requires a patent or registering the innovative object to obtain protection, in copyright protection arises automatically upon the creation occurs (unless in cases regarding proof) and it has an extremely long duration (throughout the life of the author or sixty years after the death thereof).
