In addition, it has indicated that these procedures are the subject of a “special follow-up and care” on the part of the prosecutor’s office given the economic damage that they generate and the difficulties in investigation and prosecution, although he adds that the new wording given to articles 270 and following of the Penal Code has solved these difficulties.

In the section of the offences against the patrimony and the socioeconomic order, the total of incoaciones in crimes against the intellectual property fell to 471, unlike the 610, 2015 and 1.061, 2014, while the crimes of intellectual property qualified ranked 222 in 2016, up from 177 in 2015 and 185 of 2014.
