So how do you get a patent? | Australia | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Webgrrl's insight:

The three kinds of registrable

 

- IP most sought by small to medium enterprises are designs, patents and trademarks.

- Copyright protects the expression of your idea in original works and cannot be registered.

- The process starts with preparation of a patent specification, which describes the invention, followed by a complete application within 12 months and a patent officer examination, says Brendan Nugent, director of Astute IP.

- “IP Australia charge an initial fee of $120 and you'll also need to pay for your trademark attorney or lawyer's fees, which are generally from $300 to $1000, and you will then need to pay a registration fee of $300 in seven-and-a-half months, when the trademark is registered.”
