Industrial Property grants two types of rights over particular immaterial creations: on the one hand the right to use the invention, design or distinctive sign, on the other hand the right to prohibit a third party to do so. In Spain there are several types of Industrial Property rights: industrial designs (protect the external appearance of the products), trademarks and trade names (protect the figurative and/or word mark combinations), patents and utility models (protect products and industrial processes) and semiconductor topographies.
