This research demonstrates at the importance of intellectual property and copyright lows in Jordan and deals with the international conventions on intellectual property and signed by Jordan. Finally, the research proposes a number of recommendations on how Jordan can combat problems and improves the enforcement of IPR legislations in the country.
