Sip 'n' Dip Australia Pty Ltd owns and operates Sip 'n' Dip the Brand located here in Australia.
We are a small family-run business that has licensed sole traders to use our brand and associated Intellectual property to create their own Sip 'n' Dip Businesses. The brand is trade marked under class 41 under trademark number 2220672
We worked really hard to get to where we are. This is why we are so passionate about protecting our intellectual property when it comes to what can and can not be used by others.
Over our time in business, we have had lots of makers come through our doors to increase their skills and learn new ones and we are totally fine with that, we love sharing creativity. But we have also had businesses come to our classes and carbon copy what we do right down to the stock we use. We have had businesses try to copy our trademarks and slogans, we have had a business try to claim we were using other people's Intelectual property in order to secure the venue we were trading in for themselves and we have even had people try to use photos from our classes to advertise their own!
Sip 'n' Dip Classes are intended for personal use only. Sip 'n' Dip Australia Pty Ltd owns the rights and intellectual property to any and all classes delivered throughout our network of providers. Any reproduction of our classwork in any form for monetary benefit is a breach of our copyright and action will be taken to recuperate monies owed from revenue created from this Intelectual Property.
Clients are warmly welcome to use the skills they learn in class in any form they choose, we encourage and celebrate creativity and welcome others to apply the skills they learn to their own work.
However, those who chose to replicate our classes, class plans, or that we can reasonably prove are using our step by step instructions (including the use of images taken during classes or the class listing to advertise competitor offerings) will be persecuted.
