IP & IT

Intellectual Property

Anderson Lloyd provides a full range of intellectual property services to clients. We advise regularly on copyright, confidential information, trade mark, design and patent-licensing matters.

Our experience includes:

  • Acting for Ovita (a subsidiary of AgResearch and Beef + Lamb) on the licensing of sheep genomics technology to Zoetis;
  • Registering and renewing trade marks, advising on trade mark disputes and advising on the protection of unregistered trade marks for clients including Christchurch City Council and Farmlands Co-operative;
  • Drafting and advising on research agreements, collaboration agreements, IP licenscing and material transfer agreements for a Crown Research Institute;
  • Appearing for clients at the Advertising Standards Authority.

ICT

 

We act for several clients in relation to securing their software and support needs, helping them ensure providers’ services result in software configured to their business requirements, and that implementation occurs in a timely way. This has included work for corporate and public sector clients, including councils and educational providers.

Our work has included negotiation with national and international software and hardware providers, drafting agreements and legal sign off at board level. Many of the system agreements we have advised on have been multi-million dollar acquisitions.

Our experience includes:

  • Advising Foodstuffs South Island Limited and Christchurch City Council on a number of issues and contracts for a complex system implementation and integration, including the co-ordination of delivery between different providers.
  • Analysis of service provision and resolving disputes over system usage, for a group of New Zealand’s largest travel centres. Our advice ensured our client could continue to manage their licensed software in their chosen way.
  • Advising on a major project with Veda Advantage (previously Baycorp Advantage), including strategic advice about system configuration and delivery to ensure its services complied with new regulations (the Credit Reporting Privacy Code). We needed to understand Veda’s systems environment and business practice, and interpret the regulatory regime in order to deliver a contractual suite of arrangements that met the client’s needs.
