Here, the emphasis is placed on the importance of how the trademark, those distinguishing signs by which the application is positioned in the market, is recognized by users and differs from competitors.
It comments on the steps to follow and the points to keep in mind from its registration, with emphasis on proof of authorship and copyright ownership, to the choice of the domain name.

These are the most important advantages that intellectual property provides to the holders of trademarks, patents, designs or domain names in the field of applications”.

Intellectual property protects artistic creations, works as a whole, from the moment of their creation, the evidence of the authorship, in this case, would be essential for its defense before third-parties. Alicia defines the three ways that are used, its characteristics and limitations, to help the reader detect which is the one to choose in their case. The Intellectual Property registry, the notarial deposit and the blockchain.
As the last fundamental aspect for the complete protection of the “idea”, on the way to achieving exclusivity, differentiation, and protection against competitors, is the domain name.
