Give your creative ideas a future!
Anyone who has inspired ideas, and works hard to develop them and turn them into a practical reality, should be able to protect this intellectual achievement. The regulations governing intangible immaterial property are defined in law and, collectively, are know as Intellectual Property Law. Intellectual Property Law covers the protection of industrial property as well as copyright and the related protection rights.
Responsible for all matters relating to intellectual property in Switzerland is the Swiss Federal Insitute of Intellectual Property.
