Does the IKR replace IP rights?

While the IKR will help you better protect your IP, it does not replace patents, trademarks, design rights, copyrights or other IP rights protections. To maximize the protection of your IP, get an IKR for your IP – and the appropriate IP rights where available.

Who uses the IKR?

The IKR is already being used by large organizations, individuals, lawyers, academics, people in the film industry, students and many more. They want to make sure their IP gets maximum protection.
