Foreword

In this edition of the IP Update we provide information regarding important changes to patent prosecution procedures and reforms in the Australian federal court system. We also discuss a number of important intellectual property cases that have been handed down over the last couple of months, including VIP Plastic Packaging Pty Ltd v BMW Plastics Pty Ltd, a case in which DCCL was involved.

In addition, we take a look at conferences and events that DCC has been involved with over the last few months, throughout Australia and internationally. We hope you enjoy the September edition of the IP Update, which continues to provide editorials on the latest cases to keep you abreast of Intellectual Property news in Australia.
