How can our Intellectual Property Lawyers help you?
IP Australia defines a trademark as a number, phrase or word, sound, fragrance, picture or any logo, packaging aspect, or any mixture of these. A registered trademark grants you the sole legal right to use, licence, or distribute goods and services for which it was registered in Australia. To conduct trademark registration searches and availability in Australia and abroad, an IP lawyer should be consulted.
The Copyright Act 1968 governs copyright, and IP Australia specifies that it secures the original representation of ideas. To protect the owner from unauthorized copying and other uses, copyright is automatically given to filmmaking, music or Art & Literature, broadcasts, and computer programmes. You may need the services of commercial lawyers if your copyright has been breached.
IP Australia defines a patent as a privilege given for any new, inventive, and useful device, substance, method, or procedure that will result in monetary gain. Applications should be submitted to IP Australia, and if approved, an Australian standard patent has 20-year validity. Patent lawyers should be consulted before filing an Australian patent application or an international patent application.
IP Australia defines design as the shape, configuration or pattern that when applied to a product, provides it a distinctive appearance. IP law only applies to designs with a commercial or industrial purpose, and they can only be registered if they are unique and fresh. For the assessments related to design searches as well as determining the legality of the design registration and design application, intellectual property lawyers should be consulted.
According to IP Australia, a trade secret is both a sort of intellectual property and a technique for securing your IP. A trade secret might be anything from a unique recipe to a unique building, manufacturing technique, or formulation. Asking workers or others who have access to your trade secret to sign confidentiality agreements is the best way to secure it. A commercial lawsuit lawyer will be required if such confidential information is breached. You must take official measures to register your IP and get legal ownership rights with the help of intellectual property lawyers, apart from copyright and circuit layout rights, which are automatic.
