IP Update – June 2010 Issue 8
The June edition of IP Update provides an update on the recent High Court application by Lion Nathan to cancel E & J Gallo Winery’s registration of the trade mark BAREFOOT and also covers the new Resale Royalty Right for Visual Artists which means that from 9 June 2010, visual artists will have a right to receive a five per cent royalty payment on secondary sales of their works over $1,000 for the duration of copyright in that work (the life of the artist plus 70 years). These are just two of the latest developments covered in this edition.
The firm was recently awarded for the third consecutive year the IP Specialist Law Firm of the Year, presented by the well respected Australasian Legal Business publication. We wish to take this opportunity to thank our clients and staff for their continued support. We hope you enjoy the June edition of IP update which seeks to provide editorials on the latest cases and developments to keep you abreast of IP news in Australia.
