Trademarks and Intellectual Property Law
Our lawyers can assist you in protecting your ideas and encouraging them to flourish.
Trademark & Intellectual Property Lawyers
Your brand or trademark can be one of the most valuable assets of your business. A trademark can be a letter, number, word, phrase, sound, smell, shape, logo, picture, movement, aspect of packaging, or a combination of these.
It gives your business the identity that helps promote your products or services. A registered trademark provides you with exclusive rights to use, license and sell the trademark.
Our team can assist you with:
- Trademark registration
- Trademark licensing agreements
- Trademark infringement disputes.
Unlike trademarks, there is no registration system for copyright under Australian law. Certain forms of expression, such as text, images and music, are automatically covered by copyright under the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth).
However, like trademarks, copyright can be a valuable asset of your business, particularly for consultants who develop manuals, plans, or other written expression of ideas.
We can prepare copyright licensing agreements and also assist you in the event that another party infringes your copyright or you find yourself receiving a demand that you have infringed someone else’s copyright.
While we do not have the expertise within our firm to advise on patents, we can provide you with an introduction to a patent attorney that can assist you.
