As a business or individual, your work and Intellectual Property is what differentiates you from others. It is valuable, important and should be protected.

Intellectual property can include your:

  • Name;
  • Logo;
  • Programs;
  • Publications;
  • Material;
  • Design and content of a website;
  • Website name or address;
  • Applications;
  • Ideas;
  • Intentions or creations; and
  • Business innovations.
