Unfortunately (despite all the positive reviews) our experience with Prosper was extremely disappointing and I have fed this back to the firm. We had one of our lead-in consults with an Associate Lawyer at Prosper on Tue 21.11.23 (15mins) and in LESS THAN 2 days we accepted Prosper's contract/terms, only to be told "we do not have the capacity to take on this matter". We were instead told, "you can use the “Find A Solicitor” function on the Queensland Law Society website to find a lawyer”. During this period there had been no change to the content/scenario regarding the matter whatsoever. It made the whole interaction with Prosper frustrating and unrewarding for us personally.

For any employers looking for a quality employment law firm, we highly recommend the team at Prosper Law.

If you are looking to hire a legal counsel on retainer, I highly recommend the Prosper Law legal team. Having engaged with Prosper at work over the past 5 months, I have found them to be great in-house lawyers and who know their stuff when it comes to contract reviews, employment law advice and marketing and consumer law… and they’re reasonably priced

Technology and IP Law FAQs

What is a trade mark?

A trade mark is a unique symbol, word, or phrase that distinguishes a company’s products or services from those of others. It serves as a valuable asset for businesses, helping them build brand recognition and customer loyalty.

Registering a trade mark provides legal protection, preventing others from using similar marks that may cause confusion among consumers.

How much does it cost to register a trade mark?

The cost of registering a trademark can vary based on different factors. Factors for trademark registration include jurisdiction, number of classes, and the choice between hiring a lawyer or using an online service.

In Australia, the cost of registering a trademark starts at AUD 250 per class for online applications.

What should an end user licence agreement include?

An EULA is a legal contract between the software developer or vendor and the end user of the software or application. Its purpose is to outline the terms and conditions under which the end user can use the software. EULAs can differ, but usually include these key elements: software details, company preferences, and terms and conditions.

  1. Start with an introduction that names the parties, like the software developer/vendor and the end user.
  2. License Grant: Clearly state what rights the software developer/vendor grants to the end user. This section specifies the scope of the license, whether it’s a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, or perpetual license.
  3. Permitted Use: Outline how the end user can use the software. This may involve restrictions on how many devices or users can use the software at the same time.
  4. Restrictions: Specify activities that are prohibited. For example, the software may not allow the end user to reverse-engineer, modify, distribute, or sell it.
  5. Intellectual Property Rights: Clarify who owns the intellectual property rights to the software and any associated trademarks or copyrights.
  6. Software developer/vendor provides warranties and disclaims liability for certain issues or damages.
  7. Support and Updates: Detail whether the software developer/vendor will provide support and updates, and if so, under what terms.
  8. Termination: Describe the conditions that can terminate the agreement and the actions or remedies that may be taken upon termination.
  9. Governing law: The agreement is governed by specific laws and legal disputes will be resolved in a specified jurisdiction.
  10. Privacy Policy: If the software collects any personal data, reference the privacy policy that explains how user data is collected, used, and protected.
  11. Changes to the Agreement: Specify how and when changes to the EULA will be communicated to the end user.
  12. Severability: Include a clause stating that if any part of the agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the rest of the agreement will still be in effect.
  13. Entire Agreement: State that the EULA constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes any previous understandings or agreements.
  14. Signature or Acceptance: Include a clause indicating how the end user can accept the terms of the agreement.
What is an IP assignment agreement?

An IP assignment agreement is a legal contract that transfers ownership of intellectual property rights from one party to another. Intellectual property includes creations of the mind, such as inventions, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents. People often use an IP assignment agreement when they want to transfer their intellectual property rights to someone else.

The agreement explains the rules for transferring ownership of intellectual property to make sure the new owner is the rightful one.

Who owns intellectual property in Australia?

Different types of intellectual property may be owned by different people.

For example, copyright is automatically owned by the author. However, those rights can be given away or transferred through a contract.

Trade marks can be registered or unregistered. By having an unregistered trade mark, the owner may find themselves losing their ownership rights if someone else registers the trade mark.

What kind of intellectual property is software?

Software has many aspects to it. The written software code is subject to copyright.

If someone substantially copies software code, it may breach the owner’s intellectual property rights.
