Industrial Porperty includes Trademarks, Trade names, Patents y Utility Models as well as Industrial Designs.
Trademarks are the distinctive signs by means of which a particular product or service is known and recognised on the market, and by means of which the customers identify a particular quality, price etc. Trademarks are generally the most important assets of the company.
The Trade name is the sign or denomination with which the company makes itself known on the market, regardless of its Trademarks which may or not coincide with said Trade name.
