Trademark and Patent Law

In the information age that we live in, the economic, social and cultural development of the societies find their source in idea generation and thus, in technological novelty and innovations. The existence of an effective patent system is regarded as the key element of both domestic and oversea economic development. An efficient protection of the intellectual products would encourage the innovative outputs and therefore, would trigger technological novelty and development. As a consequence, this would generate an essential criterion for the foreign investors while electing a country to initiate investment. The transfer of technology that would appear as a result of the protection of intellectual products will promote increase in the rate of growth and the foreign trade volume of that state.   

In order for the innovations, designs and services to gain personality and thus to enable them to be distinguished in the relevant market, the enterprises are exploiting trademarks that possess the properties of being promotional and representative.
