In the last couple of years, within the European Union Law or the so – called “European Community law” several different documents have been adopted, establishing the system of European standards in the field of regulating and protecting intellectual property rights, as well as the right of competition, in order to prevent the collision between these two significant rights that represent preconditions for further technological progress of the European Union member states. These rights refer to various forms of material (tangible) and immaterial (intangible) creations that are placed under special legal protection, guaranteed not only for their authors (creators) but for other persons as well. The Republic of Serbia has recently adopted new legislation regulating the field of intellectual property rights, including: Law on Copyright and Related Rights, Law on Trademarks, Law on the protection of Topographies of Integrated Circuits and Law on the Legal Protection of Industrial Design. Hence, our country accepted numerous European standards from this field and implemented them in its national legal system, which actually represents the issue discussed in this paper.
