Intellectual property rights are similar to any other property rights. These have the aim of protecting creations of an owner’s intellect such as; inventions, designs, artworks, symbols, and signages. You can safeguard this through efficient and equitable intellectual property systems present in many countries with different IP rights like patents, trademarks, copyrights enabling the owner to benefit from their own work or investment in a creation. The government established IPO Pakistan as an independent body on April 8, 2005.

Types of Intellectual Property


Patents secure and provide protection against stealing one’s idea. It gives the right to an inventor and enables them to prohibit or exclude others from building, copying, selling, or making use of their creations, unless given permission. According to the international standard law, an owner can protect their invention for over 20 years by filing a patent.

The categories of work that can be protected under copyright law include literary work, music, movies, photographic images and software etc.

Publish work in newspaper (Artistic work only)
Opposition, if any
Issuance of Certificate by Registrar (Registration)


A trademark can simply be in a form of a phrase, symbol or a sign that is focused on establishing a unique identity and distinguishes one party from another. Unlike patents or copyrights, trademarks are not prone to being time-specific. They are life-long and can be used as long as you wish to indicate your presence on the goods and services in everyday commerce.

Therefore, it is essential to protect your company’s reputation by registering a trademark for your brand name, logo, image, signature and graphs of your company. Following are the steps to register a trademark in Pakistan:

Application for name availability in IPO Office
