IP Australia administers Australia's IP rights system, specifically patents, trade marks, designs and plant breeder rights.
Our core task is to administer statutes relating to IP. By granting these rights, IP Australia helps to
create a secure environment for investment in innovation enable firms to build brand value and business reputation encourage the disclosure of inventions and the transfer of knowledge and technology provide a legal framework for trading intellectual assets.
IP Australia incorporates the Patent, Designs, Trade Marks and Plant Breeder's Rights (PBR) Offices. It is a prescribed agency within the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR), operating independently of the Department on financial matters and with some degree of autonomy on other matters. By charging fees for services, IP Australia recovers more than 95% of costs.Please Login (add)
