IP LAWYERS SYDNEY
Intellectual Property (or IP) is complicated at best but it is essential for Australian business owners to understand as getting it wrong could be detrimental. Put simply, Intellectual Property is an intangible asset that is protected under federal legislation and common law. It is a cornerstone to many businesses, especially start-ups and small family businesses.
Australian IP laws are in place to help encourage innovation and protect businesses and their competitive advantage. Australia is also a signatory to a multiple international agreement that protect IP in other countries and even has a dedicated agency for administering IP rights and legislation called ‘IP Australia’.
The most common types of IP rights include:
- Patents: protect inventions and new processes
- Trademarks: protect logos, words and other branding
- Copyright: protect art, writing, music, film, and computer programs
- Registered Designs: protects the visual design of a product
- Circuit Layout Rights: protect layout designs or plans of integrated circuits used in computer-generated designs
- Plant Breeders Rights: protect the commercial rights of new plant varieties
- Trade Secrets: this is the protection of confidential information including secret formulas, processes, and methods used in production
