Establishing the structure of the legal regulations in the field of intellectual property is essential, irrespective of their formal, international, regional or national origin in relation to the creation, especially due to the fact that an intellectual creation can benefit from multiple types of protection mainly due to the coexistence of regional, national and international systems of protection corresponding to each category of intellectual creation. Multiple types of protection are addressed particularly due to the fact that a certain intellectual creation, provided it fulfils a number of conditions, may constitute an object for specific protection systems corresponding to several categories of intellectual creations. This analysis aims to annalyze the relation between the civil law, the commercial law and the intellectual property law and to establish the subsidiary rules in the field of intellectual property. In Romania, for instance, this aspect was significant even previous to the new civil code as well as subsequent to it.
