A patent is an intellectual property right granted over a new invention. A registered patent provides the patent owner with exclusive right to commercially exploit it over a period of time. The patent owner also has the right to licence, use, or sell the invention or any of the products made using the invention.
Patent protection is not automatically granted and there is a process to go through with IP Australia. You must be very careful not to disclose or publish the invention prior to formal submission of the patent to IP Australia. You can also file your patent in multiple jurisdictions around the world and there is a process for that also.
Patents are an extremely specialised area and we facilitate Australian businesses in obtaining the patent advice with patent attorneys and then provide that legal advice to Australian businesses like in-house counsel and translate the advice, facilitating the decision-making process.
