Intellectual Property

The protection of intellectual property is absolutely fundamental to business in this electronic age when information can be shared so easily. The more that you do to protect intellectual property the safer that property becomes.

Before setting up a business and spending lots of money on websites, domains, company names or logos you need to make enquiries to ensure the name you want is available and that you can protect it.

It is not sufficient to pop the name into the ASIC website, IP Australia or Google. Proper searches need to be conducted by experienced professionals. 

Don’t expect protection if you do nothing!
