The Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand

The Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand Inc. is an independent Society whose principal object is to provide a forum for the dissemination of Information about the discussions of issues relating to intellectual property.

Intellectual property rights underpin much of the investment of time, money and resources that is expended in the process of innovation in our society.

The Society has been established as an association of people who work with intellectual property laws (lawyers, patent attorneys, licensing managers and academics) and those who are users of these laws.

It provides a unique forum in which to meet and discuss current problems and developments in this fascinating and rapidly expanding area.

Through the laws of patents, copyright, designs, trade marks, unfair competition and trade secrets, protection is given to those who create, develop and market new concepts and ideas across a vast range of industries and occupations.

IPSANZ is a trans-Tasman association with a broad membership base, including patent attorneys, solicitors, barristers and academics, as well as persons working in the industrial and government sectors.
