Review commenced: 02/01/2002
Duration of review: 2001-2004
This wide ranging review examined issues affecting the enforcement of trade marks in Australia and followed on from ACIP's earlier Review of the Enforcement of Industrial Property Rights.
ACIP conducted a series of discussions with the business community (including both small and large businesses) in all capital cities, and subsequently developed an Issues Paper. ACIP also held public seminars in April 2002 in a number of State capitals to consult with stakeholders on the Issues Paper. The Australian Government released ACIP's Final Report on 25 May 2004 and the Government response was issued on 7 December 2005.
