Trade mark owners are being warned to be wary of any organisations looking to charge for intellectual property (IP) services, following a number of complaints about a fake organisation seeking payment for IP.

IP Australia has received numerous phone calls from trade mark owners recently who have received unsolicited correspondence requesting payment for publication of the trade mark owner’s trade mark details in a register.

IP Australia has stated that the company is not in any way associated with their organization and has no official or government authority.

IP Australia has advised trade mark owners to check whether the service provider is legitimate and to find out what protection, promotion or value the service will provide before handing over any money.

For more information relating to the risks of unsolicited IP services, please visit the IP Australia website.
