An item of mine protected by industrial property rights has been copied or I am accused of copying one.

These matters are not under the authority of the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office.

The respective industrial property laws for patents, distinctive signs and industrial design establish the scope of protection that these rights grant to their holder and the legal actions the holder can undertake against anyone who violates these rights (see http://www.oepm.es/en/propiedad_industrial/Normativa/).

Given that it is the courts or the agreement between the parties that must decide these disputes, we suggest you consult an industrial property agent or an attorney specialising in this field.
