Abstract

This chapter contains an overview of the forms of statutory IP rights (namely, copyright, trademarks, registered designs, patents, and plant breeders’ rights) in South Africa, and the statutory provisions concerning the creation of security interests over statutory IP rights. The legal position in South African law concerning IP rights is found to be underdeveloped. The legal nature of the statutory security interests over IP rights is considered, together with the common-law methods of obtaining real security rights over statutory IP rights.
