Warning: Don't be fooled!

Do not pay unnecessary costs Updated 21 May: Be aware of misleading invoices offering services to help you protect your IP rights in return for a fee.

The Intellectual Property Office can help you get the right type of protection for your creation or invention.

Intellectual Property (IP) results from the expression of an idea. So IP might be a brand, an invention, a design, a song or another intellectual creation. IP can be owned, bought and sold. But how can that help you? See Why use IP?
