This article aims to provide a critical evaluation Industry 4.0 and intellectual property law, questioning how the widespread adoption of new digital technologies (Internet of Things, robotic systems, artificial intelligence, Big Data Analytics, etc.) can affect the formulation of the intellectual property rights and result in new insights, especially regarding the protection of intellectual property. This assay adopts the hypothetical-deductive methodology utilising literature review and the jurisprudence from UK Court of Appeal (case No. B2/2013/1812) in order to analyse the progress in this area in Europe and in the English legal system, both of which are demonstrating a greater speed in the response to new problems in data protection, recommending at the end, the application of comparative law in Brazil in cases of legislative omission, while there is no specific legislation based on globalized customs.
