Intellectual Property Office
Access intellectual property advice from the experts
Did you know?
Patents, trademarks and registered designs have to be applied for and granted by the relevant Intellectual Property Office and have to be renewed to keep the rights in force. These rights are specific to the country in which they were applied for. When registering your creation you would need to consider in which geographic locations you would want protection. It may just be the UK or you may want to apply for protection in Europe or worldwide. It depends on the nature of the creation or product and your perceived market.
