Information Communications Technology

Our team provides clear and pragmatic advice to a broad spectrum of local and international companies and research institutes, helping them maximize the potential of their intellectual property.

The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector includes a multitude of technical disciplines which underpin a diverse range of commercial enterprises. Each has their own particular needs and objectives, requiring specialist support.

Protecting inventions in this field, locally and internationally, requires both specific technical expertise and experience. This is particularly so in relation to the type of intellectual property which can be protected in each unique jurisdiction.

The large Physics, Electronics and Telecommunications team at Fisher Adams Kelly Callinans has acquired invaluable industry experience in Australasia, Europe and the United States in areas such as:

  • Electrical and electronic engineering
  • Signal and data processing
  • Computer hardware and software including financial systems, embedded systems, control systems
  • Telecommunications
  • Imaging and multimedia
  • Semi-conductors and optics

In addition to our ICT patent services, our team of specialist trade marks attorneys can assist in the development, registration, management, and enforcement of trade marks in the ICT field. We have an in-depth understanding of trade mark issues that may arise in relation to ICT products and services in Australia and overseas jurisdictions, including the use of trade marks on the Internet, and the use of trade marks as domain names. Our team also has experience in domain name disputes under the .au Dispute Resolution Policy (auDRP) and the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP).

It would be our pleasure to discuss how we can protect and maximise the commercial value of your information communications technology innovations and brands.
