Intellectual property is an “umbrella term” covering various manifestations of human creative thought. You may not be familiar with the expression, but you will certainly have heard of some examples of intellectual property rights, including patents, copyright, trademarks and registered designs.

Most countries have laws that protect intellectual property, and allow the rightful owner to prevent others from exploiting it.

The legal provisions for obtaining and enforcing intellectual property rights are often complex. Fortunately, professionals such as patent attorneys and trade mark attorneys are experts in this area, having studied the law extensively and been subjected to rigorous professional examinations.

  • Patents

    Protect new, technical ideas, must be applied for in a patent application and can last up to 20 years.

  • Designs

    Registered designs are concerned with the appearance of an article, its shape or surface ornamentation and must be applied for. Can last up to 25 years. Unregistered design right subsists automatically in originally designed articles, no need to apply and lasts 15 years from creation or 10 years from first marketing.
