Other IP ProtectionAn introduction to Patents, registered designs, trademarks and copyright.
Patents - A patent protects new inventions and covers how things work, what they do, how they do it, what they are made of and how they are made.
Registered Designs - If your idea is unique because it looks different from anything else currently available, then it could probably be protected by registering it as a design. This gives you exclusive rights for the look and appearance of your product. This is used for T shirt designs among other things.
Trademarks - A trade mark is a sign which can distinguish your goods and services from those of your competitors. It can be for example words, logos or a combination of both.
Copyright - Copyright can protect a large variety of creative works. See the specific copyright page for more information.
