Legal tip 75. Intellectual property rights in Spain
27 April 2009 @ 08:36

 Intellectual property in Spain is regulated by Royal Decree 1/1996. The Decree  distinguishes between standard copyright (whose holder is the author of a literary, artistic or scientific work) which comprises full exploitation rights on the work , and other related rights, out of a connection with the work ( performers, artists, players, producers...).

Registration is voluntary and  it is not needed for the acquisition of copyrights, which arise just out of creation. Registration constitutes a qualified proof of existence of those registered rights.

Registration can be done on-line. Fees need to be paid in advance.
