IP, trademarks and copyright

Is your business idea based on innovative research (or new idea) that has led to new products and processes being developed? If so then you should consider securing your intellectual property (IP) through copyright, trademarks and patents. Learn the basics using these resources.

IP Basics are short animated videos, created by the Intellectual Property Office, explaining the different IP rights and how IP can benefit your business.

IP Tutor is a free, 40-minute online training course, designed by the Intellectual Property Office, which teaches you the basics of IP. 

IP for Research is a website that provides resources designed to help you to identify how intellectual property fits into your research and the commercialisation process.
