Intellectual Property Documents
Our range of intellectual property templates provide for most situations where protection of intellectual property rights is required.
Business owners and individuals may create work and information in the course of their business, occupation or hobby that is valuable to them and which they need to protect. As well as protecting the actual physical product or document from loss or theft, it is often necesary to protect the idea, design or invention behind it to prevent others from copying or profiting from it at the owner's expense.
Intellectual property means the legal property rights that a person has over a creation or brand. Such creations can include music, literary work, discoveries, inventions, words, phrases or symbols. The most common types of intellectual property are copyrights, trademarks, patents, design rights, trade secrets, and industrial rights. The purpose of the intellectual property right is to grant a temporary monopoly to the owner or creator of the work to prevent others from copying or exercising certain uses of it. There are legal requirements that must be met in order to protect intellectual property.
