Background and Aim: The Law of the Intellectual Property is one of the types of property rights that are related to the protection and use of human intellectual creations. Given the proliferation of communications, opportunities and threats posed by cyberspace, it is important to examine the legal approaches to cyber threats in the field of intellectual property, which is addressed in this study.
Method: The present research method is descriptive-analytical of applied type and has been done by using the legal rules of intellectual property in the field of cyberspace and library resources.
Ethical considerations: In organizing this research, while observing the originality of the texts, honesty and trustworthiness have been observed.
Results: International conventions and treaties, although known as general approaches and even roadmaps for dealing with cyber threats, do not specifically address the problems of other societies in protecting intellectual property. For this reason, promoting a culture of using cyberspace, determining punishment commensurate with infringement of intellectual property, criminalizing cyber threats, and establishing codified laws to recognize intellectual property as legal elements are essential to protecting intellectual property.
Conclusion: Intellectual property, unlike material property, has more hidden and informal aspects. For this reason, existing intellectual property protection laws are often incomplete or lacking in cyberspace. It seems that we need a coherent and accepted approach in international law by the countries of the world. In domestic law, we also need an intellectual property institution under existing laws. In addition, intellectual property and related laws, including copyright laws, the publication of content in cyberspace, and the use of the Internet, require more stringent approaches that take into account both international law and law. Treat intellectual property as industrial property.
