What is Intellectual Property (IP)?
Intellectual property (IP) is a property that arises from intellectual endeavours. IP typically protects the expression of an idea or a creative output.
The main recognised types of intellectual property are:
Each of these types has a different function and achieves different objectives. The legal rights and obligations attaching to each type also differ.
Does my business have Intellectual Property?
We believe that almost every business either generates or uses intellectual property in some way. In many cases, a business will do both.
We also believe that it is important to recognise, identify and protect that IP.
It's important to identify the points where IP may impact a business and develop a strategy to manage those inputs. If a business generates IP, how does it protect that IP? If it uses a third party's IP, how does it ensure that use is proper and legal?
