What is Intellectual Property of your Business
Publishers and lawyers like to describe copyright as “Intellectual Property” — a term that also includes patents, trade marks, and other more obscure areas of Intellectual Property Law. These Intellectual Property Laws have so little in common, and differ so much, that it is ill-advised to generalize about them. It is best to talk specifically about “Business Copyright”, or about “Business Patent”, or about “Business Trade Mark”.
Intellectual Property (IP) represents the product of your mind or intellect. It can be an invention, trade mark, original design or the practical application of a good idea. These rights are very valuable assets that can distinguish your business from your competition, making your products and services unique and attractive to your customers. IP rights are different and separate to property rights that exist in the physical product itself. For example, a person may own a book but may not own the copyright (e.g. the rights to reproduce, adapt or publish) in the text, drawings or tables contained in the book.
Other intangible assets such as business names, domain names, employees' specialist knowledge and customer lists may also be discussed. These and other intangible assets are often the building blocks of new business and form key parts of your ultimate business plan. If the plan is a good one, these assets could become more valuable. So from the start, be aware of the importance of your Intellectual Property assets and ensure they are well protected and managed.
Business Copyright protects the original expression of ideas, not the ideas
themselves. Includes protection for original works of art, literature, music, films,
broadcasts and computer programs from unauthorized copying.
Business Copyright is a type of property that is founded on a person's creative skill and labour. It is designed to prevent the unauthorized use by others of a work, that is, the original form in which an idea or information has been expressed by the creator.

Business Trade Mark
Business Trade Mark are 'signs' used commercially to distinguish the goods
and services of one trader from those of another. These 'signs' can be a word, phrase,
picture, logo, letter, numeral, shape, colour, sound, scent or aspect of packaging.
Registration of the trade mark gives the owner the legal right to use or control
the use of the mark for the goods or services for which it is registered.
The difference between Business Trade Mark, business, company and domain names sometimes causes confusion. Registration of a business, company or domain name does not in itself give you any proprietary rights - only a Business Trade Mark can give you that kind of protection.

Business Patent is a right granted for any device, substance, method or process
which is new, inventive and useful. A Business Patent is legally enforceable
and gives the owner the exclusive right to commercially exploit the invention for
the life of the Business Patent.
You have to apply for a patent in order to protect your invention, as it isn't automatically protected. All applications for patents are examined to ensure they meet the necessary legal requirements for granting a patent.

Business Designs protect the shape, configuration, pattern or ornamentation of products. To be registrable, a design must be new and distinctive. Registration of a design gives the owner protection for the visual appearance of the product but not the feel of the product, what it is made from or how it works.
Plant Breeder's Rights
Plant Breeder's Rights protect new varieties of plants. The owner has exclusive
commercial rights to market the registered variety.
Plant Breeder's Rights (PBR) are exclusive commercial rights to a registered variety of plant. Varieties protected by PBR may only be produced for sale, sold, imported, exported or conditioned with the authority of the owner.
If you are the original breeder of a new variety of plant, or have acquired ownership rights from the original breeder, then you can apply for Plant Breeder's Rights.
Please note that only new or recently exploited varieties can be registered. Apply for the rights using application forms available from the PBR Office.
