Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the intellect for which a monopoly is assigned to designated owners by law. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are the protections granted to the creators of IP, and include trademarks, copyright, patents, industrial design rights, and in some jurisdictions trade secrets. Artistic works including music and literature, as well as discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs can all be protected as intellectual property.

Intellectual property (IP) law practice deals with legal matters related to patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyright, design, and geographical indications.

Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. IP is protected in law by, for example, patents, copyright and trademarks, which enable people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create.

The law creates an ideal environment for an inventor to benefit from the hard work but at the same time fosters creativity, innovation, and public interests.

By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish. Intellectual property is a broad categorical description for the set of intangibles owned and legally protected by a company from outside use or implementation without consent.

An experienced Australian intellectual property lawyer can help you protect your rights and claims over your inventions, creative expressions and provide a way to commercialise such intellectual properties.

Intellectual property can consist of patents, trade secrets, copyrights and trademarks or simply ideas. The concept of intellectual property relates to the fact that certain products of human intellect should be afforded the same protective rights that apply to physical property. Most developed economies have legal measures in place to protect both forms of property.
