Public consultation on the draft Intellectual Property Laws Amendment Bill 2017, and the draft Intellectual Property Laws Amendment Regulation 2017

Published: 
24 November 2016

We are currently seeking input from interested parties about proposed changes to Australia’s IP legislation.

The aim of these proposed changes is to align and streamline the processes for obtaining, maintaining and challenging IP rights. Using similar processes for the different IP rights would make the IP system simpler and assist businesses dealing with more than one right.

Making a submission

We invite you to provide a written submission on the exposure drafts by 22 January 2017. Further information (including full details about how to provide a written submission) is available on our consultation page.
