Whether you’re just starting out or you have an established business, if you’re looking to protect and grow your business, it’s important to understand the basics of intellectual property (IP).
IP Australia has recognised that many small business operators are time and cash poor and often have little knowledge about securing trademarks, and the difference between a trademark and a business name. To simplify the subject IP Australia has created a guide to the essentials:.
Featuring user-friendly language, the guide will help you put a value on your IP and understand what your accountant means when referring to ‘intangible assets’.
Being vigilant and protecting your IP from the start will help keep your investment safe and prevent you from being ‘ripped off’.
