Patent & Copyrights

At ProtoProducts  we understand the importance of protecting your idea. We offer advice on all aspects of the patenting process and can also help you register your patent.


What is a patent?

A patent is defined as a novel and inventive step, which offers new technology, an improvement on existing technology or a combination of existing technologies.
Obtaining a patent may not always be appropriate, so ProtoProducts  can offer free advice on other ways to protect your product idea such as:

  • Registered Designs

  • Trademarks

  • Copyright


Why patent your product or idea?

A Patent offers protection to the inventor, in relation to the functionality of the product. Once granted the patentee has protection to prevent others from making, using, selling, or distributing the patented invention without permission.

  • Offer advice on the best time to patent your idea within the development process
