Intellectual property (IP) and protection of rights related to IP is an important issue for businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, inventors and the like. IP can be a significant asset, so ensuring those IP rights are appropriately identified; protected; and that infringement are dealt with correctly should be a key element of any IP risk minimisation strategy.
Intellectual property (IP) is a form of intangible property right created by a person through their mind, for example, creating an invention or a piece of art.

A trade mark is a way of identifying a particular good, service or business. When one talks about a “brand” this is typically a reference to a trademark.
Once registered, the owner has a legally enforceable and exclusive right to that trade mark. Such rights also enable the trade mark owner to licence its use or ever sell the IP right. For example, a Franchisor may licence its Franchisees to use the Franchisor’s trade mark in promotion of the franchised business.
Where a person has invented a device, substance, process or method which has the characteristic of providing a “new” way of doing something, or offers a new solution to a problem, it is important that the owner’s IP rights in the invention are protected.
A patent is the vehicle for protecting such rights.
