As leading Australian patent attorneys and IP advisors, Griffith Hack <Link> has been  working closely with Ambercite as a licensee since 2009.

Ambercite partners with Tokyo’s IDEACAST LLC to market Ambercite products and services in Japan, under the  website. IDEACAST has comprehensive experience in the business, legal and intellectual property industries in Japan, helping us to better understand this important market.

IDEACAST can be contacted on or 090 9853 3430.


We collaborate with TrademarkVision <Link> a fellow Australian startup, mainly to educate the market about improved IP search tools. TrademarkVision is an online trademark service which uses image recognition to simplify and improve trademark searching and monitoring. Currently trademarks are searched from descriptions of logos using words or codes. You’ll appreciate that this can be a very subjective process, generating lots of irrelevant results and often missing pertinent ones.

By contrast, TrademarkVision’s technology makes matches on visual similarity. The company has been commercializing this award winning technology, which has been developed over years of computer vision research at NICTA. In the words of CEO Sandra Mau: ‘With the large number of logos and other brand images being generated daily, text search isn’t sufficient to secure a brand. Our vision is to grow our Australian image search tech innovation into a global standard.’
