IP Health Check
Intellectual Property Office
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.
