Law on Industrial Property/ Industrial Property Act
"Law on Industrial Property" o "Industrial Property Act"
El término “Industrial Property Law”, así en singular, puede entenderse [de hecho así se usa] para significar “Derecho de Propiedad Industrial”; en plural, “Industrial Property Laws” queda claro que significa “Leyes de/sobre Propiedad Industrial”.
Creo que los Estatutos de la OMPI te serán útiles a este respecto.

In the field of Industrial Property Law, two Standing Committees and one Advisory Committee have been established to monitor all activities in the area of international industrial property law and related general industrial property issues, prepare studies and proposals for improvement, and consider the most appropriate approach to their adoption and implementation, these are:
• the Standing Committee on the Law of Patents,
• the Standing Committee on the Law of Trademarks, Industrial Designs and Geographical Indications,
• the Advisory Committee on Enforcement of Industrial Property Rights.
Although the right to assert a copyright was afforded in the common law, it was not until the introduction of the Industrial and Commercial Property (Protection) Act, 1927 that copyright law was put on a statutory footing. In addition to setting up the Irish Patent Office, the 1927 Act also dealt substantially with patents, trade marks and industrial designs. Part IV of the Act dealt specifically with copyright and made provisions for such matters as ownership, infringement, remedies, exemptions, compulsory licenses, works of joint and foreign authors, posthumous works, and the preservation of existing copyrights.
In more recent times, the Copyright and Related Rights Act 2000 (which came into operation on 1 January 2001), considerably extended the Controller's statutory functions in the copyright domain. In addition to the dispute resolution functions that existed under the 1963 Act, the Controller now has a role in regulating licensing schemes and proposed licensing schemes in relation to various areas which are subject to copyright and other rights. This function includes the establishment and maintenance of a number of related Registers.
