The intellectual property is approached, both national plan and international, from two perspectives: author rights and rights connected to them. From scientific perspective, even if the legislation from the domain (8/1996 Low, modified and rectified by 285/2004 Law) is clear and specified, the attention of the public organisms-first of all Romanian Office of Authors Rights (O.R.D.A), but even the organization from different sub domains which produce author rights, are mainly interested to the rights resulted from the audio-video area. Organization like UCMR-ADA, CREDIDAM, COPYRO, DACIN-SARA and others similar are exclusively preoccupied about the rights of different professional groups, while O.S.I.M. (Office of the State for Invention and Marks), national organization with more general attributions in the intellectual property domain is priority directed to protect those products with commercial value who are under the incidence of the intellectual copyrights property (marks, invention patent act, industrial properties, etc.). Unfortunately, these institutes are only marginally preoccupied to protect intellectual copyrights property in the academic domain (work texts, protected ideas). From the perspective of the purpose system, the automatist identification of fraud temptations over the intellectual copyrights property represents both an absolute premier in Romania, as well as a major necessity, whilst this tip of fraud is undergoing an exponential growing in the last period.
