QUIROZ PAPA DE GARCIA, Rosalía. Penalties for plagiarism of literary works imposed by Peru's Instituto Nacional de Defensa de la Competencia y de la Protección de la Propiedad Intelectual (Indecopi) (National Institute of Jurisdiction and Protection of Intellectual Property). Investig. bibl [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.63, pp.115-162. ISSN 2448-8321.

The research describes and analyzes the jurisprudence of the Court of Indecopi, which through the Chamber of Intellectual Property issues rulings as the second and final administrative authority in Peru. This study examined rulings handed down over a four-year period (2008-211) in copyright infringement cases, i.e., plagiarism, which, moreover, appear on the web page of the institution. The study employs a documentary analysis methodology of each plagiarism case ruling issued by the Chamber. Notwithstanding the relatively scant number of plagiarism cases arising from online publishing, the study concludes that the legal conception of plagiarism has expanded since the advent of the internet. Most of these cases are filed and pursued ex officio by the office charged with protecting intellectual property and copyright.
