Intellectual Property Rights

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) is the government office responsible for administering all intellectual property laws in Trinidad and Tobago. Intellectual Property refers to the expressed creations of the human mind and is divided into three main branches: Industrial Property, Copyright and Related Rights. Industrial Property refers to trademarks (logos, names and symbols); patents (inventions); industrial designs; integrated circuits; new plant varieties and geographical indications. Copyright is the intellectual property right that subsists in original literary and artistic works. Related Rights are rights that pertain to performances, sound recordings and broadcasts.
