Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) relates to new creations, such as an invention, a brand name, or a literary or artistic work. The following IP rights are recognised in Turkey: Industrial property rights relating to inventions (patents and utility models), trade marks, industrial designs, geographical indications, integrated circuit topographies, copyright, trade secrets.

IP rights in Turkey are divided into two categories: Unregistered and registered rights. Unregistered rights arise automatically without fulfilling any procedures upon the creation whereas registered rights should be applied before the relevant authority to benefit from the protection. Registered intellectual property rights can be protected by lex specialis. According to the Turkish Law, protection is also possible by general provisions such as unfair competition.

Our office has a significant experience in the areas of acquisition, maintenance and protection of intellectual property rights, their infringement and enforcement.
