Intellectual property (IP) is something you have invented, created, designed or written. IP can be known as ‘property of the mind’ because it is not tangible like land, also known as ‘real property’. Instead, it is an asset that belongs to the person who created it, and can be sold, leased, or transferred. For this reason, it is worth protecting your IP.

In New Zealand, your IP is protected to some degree by copyright. However, this does not offer comprehensive protection. For example, it does not prevent others from creating something similar to your work. You can protect your IP by having a lawyer assist you with registering for a trademark or patent.

LegalVision’s intellectual property lawyers and attorneys have experience managing the complicated trade mark registration and patent process from beginning to end. They share their knowledge in articles that explain the main steps in plain English.
