IP Equip App

Intellectual Property Office

What does it do?

There are four main types of IP:

  • Patents – protects new inventions; how they work, what they do, how they do it, what they are made of and how they are made
  • Designs – protects the overall look of a product including the colour, shape, texture and material.
  • Trade marks – protects brands, such as your business name or logo, and can consist of a word, phrase, picture or a combination of all these.
  • Copyright – protects written, dramatic, musical and artistic works including photos, recordings, software and databases.

Perfect for accessing simple IP information on the go, the app gives you an overview of IP rights and how to make the most of them.
