intellectual property, bureaucratic barriers, INDECOPI, fees, Peru


The article begins by highlighting Peru's tradition of innovation and the need to protect citizens' creative creations. The question arises as to whether the fees set by INDECOPI represent a bureaucratic barrier for those who wish to protect their creations. The definition of bureaucratic barriers such as excessive requirements or charges that hinder access to the market is introduced. An overview of INDECOPI's functions is provided, which include market promotion, protection of consumer rights, and protection of intellectual property. The mission and institutional vision of INDECOPI is mentioned. The article also defines the types of bureaucratic barriers, such as those unreasonable, and illegal, and analyzes the rates established by INDECOPI for various procedures, comparing them with those of other entities such as the National Superintendence of Public Registries (SUNARP). INDECOPI resolutions declaring certain procedures of other entities as illegal bureaucratic barriers are being discussed, which raises questions about the coherence between these decisions and the fees established by INDECOPI. In conclusion, the incongruity of INDECOPI in demanding high fees to defend itself from the bureaucratic barriers that they themselves impose is raised. It highlights the need to review and possibly adjust these fees to ensure equitable access to intellectual property protection in Peru.
