Information Booklets

The Intellectual Property Office of Ireland has produced the following information booklets, which are intended as a general guide; they are not a legal interpretation of the legislation but summarise certain important provisions. As with all guides, they include a number of generalisations and simplifications and should not be regarded as a substitute for the legislation.
