Before proceeding with any executive activity, we recommend proceeding with prior art searches in order to avoid where possible the risk that third party rights are not infringed. In fact, the law protects those who produce innovation, that is NEW.

- Novelty in the Patent: Art. 46 CPI
- Novelty in Design: Art. 32 CPI
- Novelty in the trademark Art. 12 CPI
