With every business, there are things that will set you apart from your competitors – but do you know how to protect yourself and your business? Do you need to protect your IP? What does that mean for your business? Intellectual property (IP) is something everyone needs to consider when starting a business. The first step is to understand what type of protection you need.

There are many different types of IP – but figuring out which one applies to you and your business can be the tricky part.

IP Australia outlines the different types of IP and advantages each has; Patents protect inventions, design registration protects their look. A registered trade mark protects brand names, logos, original sounds and scents, and even aspects of packaging.
