The capital of Queensland is a thriving commercial hub in Australia and the need for registration of the intellectual property is quite high in the region. A standard patent usually lasts for 20 years from the time of filing of the application and protects your IP for a long duration. However, the business filing the patent must have invented something new and inventive, which needs to be protected from competitors, who can copy it for their own advantage. Businesses can also opt for an innovative patent which is mostly an advanced technological innovation that makes the current technology outdated. The innovative patent is valid for up to eight years in Australia. For overseas protection, you will have to file a separate patent application in each country where you need to safeguard your IP.
