Intellectual Property Lawyer
The products of the individuals' intellectual works have an economic meaning in terms of their assets and also have spiritual interests on these products. Unauthorized use of a trademark element or patent, selling unauthorized copies of a product, or, more generally, violating the intellectual property rights of the pirated products. Applying for effective legal protection against such violations of rights is extremely important both for financial and moral implications for the rights holder. Our law has linked two different consequences to such violations of rights, such as compensation law and criminal law, and it seems that the effective use of both areas of law is important for achieving desired outcomes.
