QLD - A dialogue with IP Australia: your Practical Patent,Trade Mark & Designs Problems addressed by IP Australia

  • 22 Aug 2018
  • 12:15 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Macpherson Kelley Boardroom - Level 16, 324 Queen St, Brisbane

Join us on Wednesday 22 August over lunch in a Q&A session hosted by Macpherson Kelley to talk directly with IP Australia’s Mr Gavin Lovie, Director – Pre Examination and Information Services (representing the administration and Customer Operations Group (filing etc.)) and Mr Adrian Richards - Trade Marks & Designs Group Hearing Officer.

 Questions being discussed include:

  • What is IP Australia’s position on the certification of GUI Designs?
  • What is the impact of the new evidence procedures on the prosecution of Patent, Design or Trade Mark oppositions?
  • How can a third party request examination of an innovation patent, if that innovation patent was converted from a standard patent to an innovation patent after the standard patent was examined?
  • In what circumstances will a Hearing Officer allow additional evidence to be filed in hearings? Especially given the recent interpretation of regulation 21.19 of the Trade Marks Regulations 1995

We invite you to continue submitting questions either in your RSVP (or direct to Ken, Malcolm or Mark), as all questions submitted will be answered by IP Australia. 

This is your chance to get answers 'straight from the horse's mouth' about anything concerning you about the prosecution of oppositions, the conduct or hearings, or issues associated with your day to day practice (e.g. evidence lodging issues, extension issues, etc.). 

This CPD redeemable session is aimed at all attorneys (Patent, Trade Mark and Design), and will provide you with the opportunity to talk directly with these two senior IP Australia officials. 

We look forward to sharing this event with you.

Please RSVP directly here.
