• Intellectual property is the set of rights that correspond to the authors and other owners (artists, producers, broadcasters ...) regarding the works and benefits resulting from their creation.

A work is fully protected by law at the same time of its creation and without the need for any formal requirements.

• IS IT NECESSARY TO REGISTER A WORK TO PROTECT IT? NO, however, it is convenient to indicate the reservation of rights and the symbol NO, however, it is convenient to indicate the reservation of rights and the symbol ©, in the case of a work.

• Registration is a protection of intellectual property rights, as it constitutes a qualified proof of the existence of registered rights.

• Intellectual property protects original literary, artistic or scientific creations, choreographies, audiovisual works, sculptures, pictorial works, plans, models, maps, photographs, computer programs and databases. It also protects artistic performances, phonograms, audiovisual recordings and broadcasting broadcasts.


• Moral and economic rights. They include two specific aspects: the right to recognition of authorship and the right of an author to preserve the integrity of the work, that is, to refuse to carry out modifications or derivative works.

• The recognition of moral rights points to the author's reputation and the inalienable right of the latter to dispose of his work in terms of recognition as well as its integrity. The most common violation of moral rights is plagiarism.

• HERITAGE OR EXPLOITATION RIGHTS. We must distinguish between:

a) Rights related to the exploitation of the protected work, which in turn are subdivided into:

Exclusive rights are those that allow the owner to authorize or prohibit acts of exploitation of his work or benefit protected by the user, and to demand compensation in return for it. The remuneration rights do not entitle the owner to authorize or prohibit the acts of exploitation of the work, although they do require the latter to pay a monetary amount for the acts of exploitation that he performs, an amount that is determined by law by the Rates of management entities.

b) Compensatory rights, such as the right to private copy that compensates for intellectual property rights no longer received due to reproductions of works or benefits protected for exclusively private use.
