Although Italy is a full member of the European Union and most international conventions, the country's patent legislation has a number of special features. Protection of intellectual property in Italy consists in the registration of exclusive rights, their use and disposal, as well as the elimination of any kind of infringement by third parties. The firm of patent attorneys Prof-Patent will provide all kinds of services for the protection of the right holder.
In order to obtain full protection of patent rights in Italy, it is necessary to go through a registration procedure. This can be done by residents of the country, as well as by individuals and enterprises of foreign countries.

The options for disposing of intellectual property in Italy are the same as in other legal systems - the right holder can conclude a full alienation contract, or transfer them on the basis of a license.
The available remedies can be used not only within Italy but also in the countries where the rights were registered.
