Frequently Asked Questions

What is intellectual property (IP)?

Intellectual property, or IP, generally refers to creations of the mind. It covers a variety of intangible assets, including logos, brand names, online content, software, written works, inventions, photos, videos, and more. Virtually all businesses will encounter intellectual property daily. Yet many business owners don’t realise the full extent of their IP assets or how to protect and exploit them effectively.

Types of Intellectual Property Protections

The four main types of intellectual property protection are:

  1. Trade marks: cover symbols, words or phrases used to represent a company, including logos or brand names. These can be legally registered or established through use.
  2. Design rights: cover the appearance of a product, including its colours, shape, texture, ornamentation, and materials.
  3. Copyright: covers literary and artistic works, including books, music, photos, and films.
  4. Patents: covers new inventions, including products or processes.

Why is intellectual property important?

Every business relies on its intellectual property to some extent. Whether it’s your strong brand reputation or the clever invention that makes your product the best in the market, your intellectual property sets you apart from your competition. Without intellectual property protections, anyone would be free to copy your brand, products, artistic works, or inventions, potentially taking business away from you or damaging the reputation you’ve worked so hard to build.

Intellectual property can also be a valuable asset. Identifying your intellectual property and understanding how to exploit it may provide you with a new revenue stream. Licensing intellectual property rights is common in many industries, particularly the arts. For example, authors may license the rights to their written work to a publisher in exchange for royalties on book sales. However, in industries where licensing IP rights is less common, some business owners may not realise they can exploit their IP assets.
