IP Australia continues to support the global IP community by joining DESIGNview, an initiative of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
Changes to help designers and improve the registered designs system are now law.
We want to better connect designers with the IP resources they need now and have partnered with the Design Institute of Australia and the Australian Fashion Council to host a series of events.
Online services will soon replace eServices. This means all customers will need to file and manage their IP rights in our new online services.
We are upgrading our online services platform to provide a more modern, intuitive and streamlined digital experience.
On 2 December 2020 the Designs Amendment (Advisory Council on Intellectual Property Response) Bill 2020 was introduced into the Senate and is currently before Parliament for consideration. Find out more about how this Bill may benefit you.
As part of IP Australia’s Indigenous Knowledge Work Plan 2020-21, and in preparation for next year’s consultations, we’ve published two new research papers by Terri Janke and Company.
We are improving the experience for our customers filing new design right applications.
We’re pleased to announce the eighth edition of the Australian Intellectual Property (IP) Report is now available.
