With regard to industrial property (now generally regarded as intellectual property or intellectual property), know-how is an element of technology transfer in the national and international context, coexisting or separate with other intellectual property rights such as patents, trademarks and copyrights, and constitutes an economic advantage.  If passed on, the know-how must be turned into a legal secret before transmission. Confidentiality agreements are concluded by those who receive confidential information from the licensee about the know-how granted to carry out their duties. These include employees of engineering offices who build the facility for the licensee or those who are key employees of the licensee, who have detailed access to the leaked data, etc., to manage their functions in the operation of the know-how-based facility. These are also in the nature of confidentiality agreements and carry the definition of know-how, whole or cut, on a knowledge-based basis. 1.5. The term documentation refers to written technical information and improvements to contract products. The concept of patent rights refers to and encompasses all patents of the licensee in force during the duration of the agreement, as well as patent applications filed by the licensee prior to termination of the agreement or having a priority date, as long as they apply to contract products and/or hedging information available to the purchaser under this agreement. The licensee is required to use the documents, technical information and enhancements available to him under this contract only for the manufacture of contract products and to keep them confidential until such information is made public. The commitment is valid for a period of five years. First of all, we should know the concept of know-how: majority teaching on the subject defines it as a set of secret, technical, scientific or otherwise practical knowledge, which results in competitive advantages for a company or a professional who uses it. 3.1.
