The new Designs Act 2003 came into force on 17 June 2004.

This legislation provides the legislative basis for the patent, trade mark, plant breeder's rights and design systems of Australia. It includes provisions for:

  • administering the Patent, Trade Marks, Plant Breeder's Rights and Designs Offices, including the powers and functions of the Commissioner of Patents and Registrars of Trade Marks, Plant Breeder's Rights and Designs;
  • establishing and maintaining the patents, trade marks, plant varieties and designs registers
    making and processing applications for granting standard or innovation patents, granting plant breeder's rights and registering trade marks and designs;
  • charging fees;
  • publishing the Official Journals of Patents, of Trade Marks and of Designs and the Plant Varieties Journal;

  • registering patent and trade marks attorneys and prescribing their rights of practice;

  • prescribing the right of review of decisions of the Commissioner and Registrars by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal; and

Some simple rules to remember:

Rule 1
Treat your IP as a business asset with a real financial value.

Rule 2
Protect your IP as you would any of your other assets.

Rule 3
Keep a look out for infringers of your IP – they can profit from your hard work and reduce your return from it. Be prepared, as a last resort, to enforce your rights by taking legal action if you cannot sort out a dispute informally.

Rule 4
Be careful to avoid infringing the intellectual property rights of others.

Rule 5
Understand the different types of IP and research which ones apply to you and make full use of the IP system.

Rule 6
Get specialist independent, legal, financial and business IP advice when necessary. Don’t leave it too late.

Rule 7
Communicate to get the best from your product or service. Be an information gatherer! But remember to keep your ideas confidential until they are fully protected.

Rule 8
Be prepared to make your IP work for you. Remember that you could profit by selling or licensing your IP as well as producing a product or providing a service yourself.

The Rome Convention and Developing Countries

Mon, 03 Feb 2014 09:59:16 -0600

A huge number of the States of the Rome Convention are developing countries. This is fairly natural since most developing countries attach great significance to music, dance as well as other creations in their nationwide heritage. The value of the Rome Convention to such countries stems from the fact that it affords security to those who contribute to the dissemination of that heritage abroad. The Convention is chiefly vital to those countries whose civilization and tradition are oral and where the author is often the performer as well. The place occupied by expressions of folklore must be borne in mind and the interests of the artists constantly performing and thus perpetuating them must be safeguarded when use is made of their performances.

Substantive Provisions of The WIPO Copyright Treaty

Tue, 28 Jan 2014 12:43:28 -0600

The provisions of the WIPO Copyright Treaty relating to the "agenda" cover up the rights appropriate to the storage as well as transmission of works in digital systems, the limitations on and exceptions to rights in a digital environment, technological measures of protection in addition to rights management information.

Developing Countries and the Berne Convention

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 11:33:26 -0600

The most important concern at the last revision of the Berne Convention remained the reinforcement of the Convention. The latest Paris Act of the Berne Convention thus recognizes a particular right in favor of developing countries. Where the identity of the author is unknown, but where there is every ground to assume that he is a national of a country of the Union, the rights in such a work are to be acknowledged in all countries of the Union. By this provision the Berne Convention has rendered it possible for the developing countries to guard their folklore also overseas. It was made a matter for legislation in the country of origin of such works to designate the competent authority which should represent the unknown author and protect and enforce his rights in the countries of the Union. By providing for the bringing of actions by authorities designated by the State the Berne Convention offers to developing countries a possibility of protecting it.

The Patent Cooperation Treaty

Fri, 24 Jan 2014 07:36:15 -0600

The national patent system needs the filing of individual patent applications for each country for which patent protection is sought. Under the traditional Paris Convention route, the priority of a prior application can be claimed for applications filed consequently in foreign countries but such later applications must be filed within 12 months of the filing date of the earlier application. This involves for the applicant the preparation as well as filing of patent applications for all countries in which he is seeking protection for his invention within one year of the filing of the first application. Filing of patent applications under the national system means that every single Patent Office with which an application is filed has to carry out a formal examination of every application filed with it. Where Patent Offices inspect patent applications as to substance, each Office has to make a search to decide the state of the art in the technical field of the invention and has to carry out an examination as to patentability.

History of the Berne Convention

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 13:53:32 -0600

Copyright protection on the international level began by about the middle of the nineteenth century on the basis of bilateral treaties. A number of such treaties providing for common recognition of rights were concluded but they were neither comprehensive enough nor of a uniform pattern. The need for a uniform system led to the formulation as well as adoption of the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works on September 9, 1886. The Berne Convention is the oldest intercontinental treaty in the field of copyright. It is open to all States. Instruments of accession or ratification are deposited with the Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization.

National Treatment of Industrial Property

Fri, 17 Jan 2014 16:06:10 -0600

Each country party to the Paris Convention must grant the same protection to nationals of the other member countries as it grants to its own nationals. The relevant provisions are contained in Articles 2 and 3 of the Paris Convention. The same national treatment must be granted to nationals of countries which are not party to the Paris Convention. This national treatment rule guarantees not only that foreigners will be protected, but also that they will not be discriminated against in any way. It would frequently be very difficult and sometimes even impossible to obtain adequate protection in foreign countries for inventions, trademarks and other subjects of industrial property without this rule.

History of the Paris Convention

Introduction of Trademark

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 07:58:40 -0600

A trademark is any sign that individualizes the goods of a given enterprise and distinguishes them from the goods of its competitors. This definition consists of two aspects which are sometimes referred to as the diverse functions of the trademark but which are however interdependent as well as for all practical purposes should always be looked at collectively. In order to individualize a product for the customer the trademark should specify its source. This does not denote that it must inform the consumer of the real person who has manufactured the product or even the one who is trading in it. It is enough that the consumer can trust in a given enterprise not essentially known to him.

Introduction of Industrial Designs

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 07:32:33 -0600

Industrial design refers to the original activity of achieving a formal or ornamental appearance for mass-produced items. In a legal sense industrial design refers to the right approved in several countries pursuant to a registration system to protect the unique ornamental as well as non-functional characteristics of an industrial article or product that result from design activity. Visual appeal is one of the considerations that influence the decision of consumers to prefer one product over another. It happens mostly in areas where a variety of products performing the same function is accessible in the market. In these situations, if the technical performance of the different products offered by diverse manufacturers is comparatively equal, then aesthetic appeal as well as cost will determine the consumer's choice. The legal protection of industrial designs thus serves the significant function of protecting one of the individual elements by which manufacturers achieve market success.
