How do I protect my intellectual property rights when drafting legal documents in Australia?
While standard legal clauses can't be copyrighted, unique phrasings, explanations, or innovative document structures can be protected. Establish copyrights for distinct content within legal documents. When sharing drafts or templates, use watermarks or protective digital formats. Ensure clarity in contracts when collaborating with co-authors or clients, detailing who owns the IP. For digital legal platforms or tools, consider software patents or licensing agreements. Always document creation processes and revisions. Should any misuse or unauthorized distribution occur, our IP lawyers can assist with protective measures and enforcement.
