Sharing is What Makes the Internet Work


The Web gave people the ability to share images easily. That’s why there are thousands of image sharing sites like Flickr and SmugMug. People want to share images that excite and motivate them. Sharing is how the internet works. We link to things that we find interesting. We talk about it on Facebook, Twitter, and other sites. Personally, it’s one of the best things about the Web.

 - Annual fees apply to keep the protections in force.

- 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.


 

- Applying for a trademark is a two-part process, explains Ursula Hogben, chief operating officer and legal practice director at LegalVision Australia. It starts with an application.


- “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.”
