Intellectual Property for Designers with IP Australia


Our panel of experts from across IP Australia will answer any questions you have about IP. This session will provide an overview of the main types of IP, what they protect and how they work together to cover different parts of a business. We will also provide an update on our continuing designs reform program.

Design is a critical enabler of Australian innovation. Our research found that Australian designers contribute more than $67 billion to the economy each year. That makes up 3.5% of GDP on average. Design businesses are full of ideas and innovation that can be protected with IP rights. Utilising your IP can maximise your competitive advantage in the marketplace. Understanding how IP rights can fit into your commercialisation strategy can be confusing – which is why we’re here to help!
