Patents protect technical inventions, such as mechanical processes or devices. Having a patent will allow you to profit from your invention or idea and license others to do so.
A trade mark is a way of identifying the products or services of a business. If your business doesn’t already have a trade mark, it’s a good idea to adopt one so that you stand apart from your competitors.
If your design is new and creates a different overall impression when compared to known designs in the market place, you will benefit from registering it. This will give you exclusive rights to the look, appearance and use of your design.
