Intellectual Property Law
Greyson Legal | Intellectual Property Lawyers
Generally, IP rights encompass:
circuit layout designs
plant breeder rights
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.
Greyson Legal can assist in identifying and implementing legal solutions to help you protect and maximise the value of your IP.
Our Intellectual Property Practice Areas
Copyright is a form of intellectual property which provides a way of protecting a person’s original expression of their ideas. For example, an artist who paints a picture or a composer who writes music would own the copyright in the picture or composition they created.
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.
IP Licensing | IP Agreements
Although intellectual property is intangible, it can still comprise a significant asset. As a type of property, IP rights can be purchased and sold or licensed to others for their use.
