The term “intellectual property” (IP) covers a wide range of intangible property resulting from investment in the creative and intellectual effort of individuals and organisations.

It is important to understand the rights granted by law to protect IP and their effects on the way you deal with material that you use in your business or job. The Queensland Business IP website should be your first place of visit for all IP related information.
