Hi Ruth,

You can trademark the name of your product name – brand (if it’s not already trademarked) and an assortment of other things – logo, packaging etc, but not the idea – refer to https://www.ipaustralia.gov.au/trade-marks/understanding-trade-marks

Did you check the trademark register before naming your product?

Do a search now to check https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/quick

If this is a little overwhelming I suggest a trademark attorney – [USER=20176]@JacquiPryor[/USER] seems to be the go-to TM attorney on this forum and you can see her website https://mmwtrademarks.com.au

As for protecting your IP I think it’s best to speak to an IP lawyer to see if it’s possible, as I am not sure what you can protect based on limited information :)

Good luck and exciting times ahead for you.

Cheers

Again thanks heaps. Great information. I went to the government site last night and it really did seem to much.
But will get on and check name etc.
