Intellectual Property Office (IPO)

The Intellectual Property Office can help you get the right type of protection for your creation or invention. We are the official government body responsible for granting Intellectual Property (IP) rights in the United Kingdom.

Intellectual Property (IP) results from the expression of an idea. So IP might be a brand, an invention, a design, a song or another intellectual creation. IP can be owned, bought and sold. The four main types of IP rights are patents, trade marks, designs and copyright but there are many other ways to protect your IP.

Keep ahead of the competition with our IP for Business tools and guidance which can help you create value from your ideas, turning inspiration into sustainable business success. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/ip-for-business-events-guidance-tools-and-case-studies
