IP Update – June 2012 Issue 16

The Australian IP scene has been active recently, and this edition of IP Update will help you make sense of it all. You may have heard about the major decisions concerning online copyright infringement, search engine liability for sponsored links, and when trade marks are deceptively similar. But do you know the detail of these rulings, and the consequences for your business? If not, see our Case Studies. New legislation has been passed, impacting on patentability requirements, defences to patent infringement, and opposition to trade mark registrations. Our Practice Updates explain these enactments and what you should do about them.
