IP Australia

For many start-ups, intellectual property (IP) is the difference between success and failure. Competing with larger established business requires new and disruptive innovation. Much of that creativity and innovation can be protected with registered IP like patents for inventions, trade marks for brands, and designs for the way a product looks.

IP Australia is the Australian Government agency that administers IP rights and legislation relating to patents, trade marks, designs and plant breeder’s rights. We process applications, conduct hearings and maintain IP registers. To understand how IP can help your business, visit
