With the exception of copyright, where only films and video recordings need to be registered, all intellectual property needs to be registered so that its owner can benefit from the Rights it gives.
Intellectual property registrations can be carried out by an individual but are always best done through a firm of Intellectual property lawyers such as ourselves because of the legal implications.
Intellectual property registrations may be made at the CIPRO (the Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office) offices in Pretoria.
If you have any queries regarding the registration of copyright, patents, trademarks or designs please contact one of our Intellectual property lawyers.
