The IP Code took effect on January 1,1998. It codified all prior laws on intellectual property rights. It created the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), with mandate to administer and implement State policies on IP. IPOPHL is the sole and exclusive government agency tasked to examine applications for grant of letters patent and the registration of marks, utility models, industrial designs, integrated circuits, geographical indications, and copyright licenses. IPOPHL adjudicates contested IPR cases

An idea is not copyrightable; an expression of the idea is. Copyright is distinct from material object. Copyright attaches on the work from the moment of creation. Registration and deposit of copyrighted work with National Library, Supreme Court and IPOPHL is prima facie evidence of copyright ownership. Fair use is a defense against copyright infringement. Plagiarism is a form of copyright infringement. In the academe, it is intellectual dishonesty. Before the commercial use of copyrighted work, clear and seek permission/license of copyright owner. After the protected period of copyright, the work becomes part of the “free use” public domain.
