IP Law Reform: ‘Raising the Bar’ Bill to become law
The Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Bill 2011 has been passed by the House of Representatives and will shortly become law.
Most of the significant changes to be introduced by the Bill (which we discussed in this previous blog post) will take effect 12 months after the Bill becomes law. In the meantime, the accompanying Regulations will be drafted and finalised and IP Australia will need to revise its systems and processes.
