Copy Right, Industrial Property and Trade Secret are all Intellectual Property.

Works created by authors, such as music, literature and arts, as well as performance and film are protected by copy right laws.

In terms of software, i.e. all types of computer programable and executable processes, either their source codes or their process’s flow chart are protected objects of the software copy right. While, on the other hand, technical solutions implemented through software programming are also protectable by patenting, because patent right which belongs to the industrial property domain provides protection to all kinds of new and inventive technical solutions including the computer software related technical solutions.

Trademark which also belongs to the industrial property domain provides protection for brands of products and services. The protection of trademarks can be extended as long as they are used, unless the trademarks are not maintained any more because they have not been used for more than three years.

In China, industrial design, i.e. design patent of product is protectable with a term up to 15 years at most. To pursue a longer protection, a design also can be protected through the Hague system – the international design system.
