Intellectual property refers to new or original ideas or inventions which belong to their creator. Such ideas are protected through the law in Australia through such processes as patents, trademarks and copyright. The main concern of legal cases involving intellectual property is the determination of whether or not an idea is genuinely original or not.

At the bottom of this profile are brief details of a number of the experts that Expert Experts represents. Call our office to discuss your requirements and to obtain a recommendation that suits your needs and budget.

What Expert Evidence

Expert witnesses can often be the deciding factor in intellectual property disputes, as they hold the ability to educate and explain to judges and magistrates what is or is not unique about the idea in relation to other of a similar nature. The most common types of ideas or inventions usually require the expert opinion of scientists, engineers or economists which can explain the originality of new inventions or business ideas.

Experts working in intellectual property cases can:

• Demonstrate to judges or juries how an invention may work

• Establish when a patent has or has not been infringed
