Patent


A patent gives its owner the right to prevent others from using their idea commercially, such as by making or importing a patented product, or using a patented process. A patent must be applied for before the invention is made public. In any event, to be valid, the invention must be:
1.'new' - even very small differences count, but your idea must be kept confidential before filing a Patent application; and
2.'inventive' - one way of getting a feel for whether something is inventive is whether the thing that makes it 'new' provides any technical advantage; however, we recommend that you contact us if you are unsure.
 

Trademark


Your brand can often be the most important piece of Intellectual Property owned by your company, and it's important that you take steps to ensure that it can't be used unfairly, or tarnished, by a competitor.

Registered Designs


Registered Designs protect the appearance of a product, rather than the way it works, and can be used to stop competitors from making/selling products that, in appearance, give the same overall impression.

Registered Designs (also known as 'Industrial Designs' and 'Design Patentents') are available in most countries of the world. In the UK, it is possible to get both a UK Registered Design as well as an EU-wide Registered Design, and the process for both is relatively fast.

Copyright


Copyright is an automatic right (similar to Unregistered Design Right) in that it does not need to be registered.

The basic form of copyright protects literary, dramatic, artistic and musical works. There are also other forms of copyright which specifically protect such things as the layout of circuits on semiconductors, and performing rights of musicians.

Copyright is effective almost everywhere in the world; however, to enforce your copyright, you must be able to prove copying. There are various simple ways in which you can improve your legal position, and we can advise on these.
