In South Africa, intellectual property (IP) is primarily governed by a collection of laws that address different aspects of IP rights. Key legislations include:

Patents Act, 1978 (Act No. 57 of 1978): This Act governs patent protection in South Africa. Trade Marks Act, 1993 (Act No. 194 of 1993): This Act deals with the registration and protection of trade marks. Designs Act, 1993 (Act No. 195 of 1993): This Act covers the registration and protection of industrial designs. Copyright Act, 1978 (Act No. 98 of 1978): This Act provides protection for copyrightable works, including literary, musical, and artistic works, as well as films, sound recordings, broadcasts, and computer programs.

These laws, along with international treaties and agreements to which South Africa is a party, provide a framework for the protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights in the country.
