There is no doubt that the information revolution that accompanied the emergence of computer and information technology prompted the penal legislator to enact legislation to confront the infringement of property rights to the information and to the outputs of this modern technology, and to close the door against those who try to undermine those rights that were created by this technology.
Accordingly, this research was presented to highlight the Jordanian penal legislation related to intellectual property, which provided this protection. This research addressed three topics. The first section defined the meaning of information technology as well as intellectual property legislation.
In the second section we presented the extent to which intellectual property legislation provides penal protection for computer programs. Violations of effective technological measures were also reported.
We ratiocinate that there was a lack in Jordanian Intellectual Property Legislation in providing protection for information technology; which led to recommending the establishment of necessary penal protection for information technology as well as amending the texts to achieve greater protection, particularly with respect to crimes of infringement of effective technological measures
