As Law of Industrial Property is defined the set of rules which recognize, control and protect rights for immaterial goods with reference to the field of financial activity. One of the most important domains of industrial property is Trade Marks Law, which has been radically reformulated especially after the compliance of the Greek Law with the European instructions for the agreement of the member states on marks.
