What is IP Infringement?
When your intellectual property – your Trade Mark, patent, Copyright or similar – is used without your permission, it’s considered an infringement of your IP. If you’re a creator, IP infringement is the system that ensures you get paid by others for the use of your work. It’s essential to have IP protections in place if you’ve created something you intend to make money from, as these protections give you the legal right to protect your work and follow up on infringements with the Australian legal system backing you up.
While you won’t automatically be alerted to infringements of your work, having proper protections in place at the time of creation will make it far easier for you to enforce them when the time comes. It can be difficult to tell if someone has infringed on your IP or if it is simply a coincidence. Many cases require a comprehensive investigation and a thorough understanding of IP laws to reach a resolution. If you’re looking to protect your IP the right way, or have a potential case for infringement, our lawyers can work with you to help you accomplish your goals. We provide legal advice and guidance, handle IP infringements, and ensure you can protect your work from unauthorised use. We can also provide ongoing support, identifying opportunities for IP protection or alerting you to potential instances of infringement. Talk to our team today for more information on our services.
