So how do you get a patent? | Australia

So how do you get a patent? | Australia | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it
This skateboard entrepreneur has learnt that protecting his deck is gnarly business.
Webgrrl's insight:

The three kinds of registrable

 

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

 - 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.”
