Tee Intellectual Property - Trademark, Copyrights & Patent Expert

You've seen it everywhere on products, on images etc.. but do you really know what it is and how important it is to have it especially for business owners and designers?

Let's have a brief understanding on what Trademark, Patent and Industrial Design is all about shall we?

TRADEMARK
Trademarks protect the brand name of a product/service and associate that product/service with the Company supplying it.

Trademark registration is valid for 10 years from the date of application and renewable every 10 years. Benefits of registering for a Trademark is to protect a Company's name, brand or logo. You commonly see this on products :

™ tm for an unregistered trademark
® r for a registered trademark

PATENT
Patents are exclusive rights granted. Once a patent is granted, it excludes others from making, using or selling the claimed invention. The patent owner can take legal action against another party who infringes his patent.

It is valid for 20 years provided that renewals are paid annually.

Now if you have came up with a new invention, it is strongly suggested that you get it Patented to protect yourself. You would not want any "copy cats" claiming that the invention is theirs wouldn't you?

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN
Industrial Design are exclusive rights granted. It protects the industrial design in the overall appearance of an article or a product. Maximum protection granted is 15 years.
