Breakthrough technologies often follow significant investment in research and development, they offer broad commercial opportunities by solving technical problems across a number of industries. Strategic intellectual property protection is essential to safeguard investment and deliver on the potential of broad technological advances. Chiliad provides commercial capabilities that add value to the IP rights that we obtain for platform technologies. In addition, we provide consulting services to further the strategy development and commercialisation for exploitation of IP.
Chiliad’s searching services can reveal whether your technology is already protected by another party, whether your technology is novel and can be protected, or whether another party is infringing your rights. Our searches provide data and insights to support IP strategy or can be aggregated with market research and technical search results to provide commercial intelligence.
Our product and technology searching services include landscape searches, white space mapping, freedom to operate searches, novelty and patentability searches, and design searches.
Patent protection offers the exclusive right to the use and exploit the unique functionality of a new technology. To be eligible to be granted a patent, a technology must be novel and inventive and otherwise comply with the Patents Act and Regulations.
We provide Australian, New Zealand and international patent filing, prosecution and registration services and any other assistance relating to compliance with the Australian or New Zealand Patents Act and Regulations. We welcome both Australian and international clients and foreign Attorneys.
Design protection offers the exclusive rights to use and exploit the unique aesthetic appearance of a new product, a new product component or a product’s new packaging. Design registration offers a cost effective option for IP protection as a design can be registered (but not enforced) without the need for substantive examination of an application for compliance with the Designs Act and Regulations.
