Issue summary: 

The Productivity Commission's Inquiry into Australia's Intellectual Property Arrangements (“PC Review”) discussed the potential use of higher fees per trade mark class of goods and/or services to discourage overclaiming of goods and/or services.

Under this proposal a reduced application fee would apply for seeking registration of a trade mark for a limited number of goods and/or services. This might reduce overclaiming for trade marks that only relate to a narrow range of goods and/or services.
