Comments sought on reforms to Australia’s IP system

The Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research has  called for written submissions on proposed reforms to Australia’s intellectual property (IP) system.

The proposed reforms aim to:

  • reduce barriers in the innovation landscape for researchers and inventors;
  • improve certainty about the validity of granted patents; and
  • allow patent claims to be resolved faster.

Information on the proposed reforms will be contained in a series of papers, available from IP Australia.
