IP Australia will be offering a design workshop via webinar. Please register on our Eventbrite page. The link is on the page and Eventbrite will remind you half an hour before the event so you remember to participate.

How IP can help your business

For many start-up businesses and entrepreneurs, IP is the difference between success and failure. Competing with larger established businesses requires new and disruptive innovation. Much of that creativity and innovation can be protected with registered IP like design rights for the way a product looks, patents for inventions and trade marks for brands.

Here’s what you can expect

Focussing on designs, the workshop will give you an awareness of how to protect your product with a registered design. You will also learn the basics of Intellectual Property and gain an understanding of the design application process.
