DIFFERENT LEGAL ASPECTS OF THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
Just like every human invention, intellectual property has two sides to it, on the one hand it allows businesses to be more productive and scientists to share research data almost instantaneously, on the other hand it grants criminals an additional tool to commit crimes and get away with it. The question is how such criminal behavior can be controlled because crime is hidden behind technology and innovations. Also cyberspace offers room for the entire spectrum of transnational criminal activity. Analysis of the comparative judicial practice in connection with intellectual property is of the exceptional importance for securing intellectual property rights in the territory of EU. The states who are the leaders in innovation and creativity establish strong legal mechanisms which provide the protection of intellectual property rights. It is generally accepted that only legal use of intellectual property can bring innovation and progress to a society. In Republic of Serbia adopted laws are, to the greatest extent, harmonized with the current both regional and international standards in the field of protection of intellectual property rights. Author deals with the criminal law protection of intellectual property and the importance of intellectual property rights as activators of global streams in EU.
