  • Raising the Bar

    As you may be aware, the Raising the Bar Act (2012) will see significant changes to Australian IP law come into force from 15 April 2013. Overall, the changes are intended to support innovation by encouraging investment in research and technology in Australia.  Some of these changes involve improving the standards and requirements of patent specifications. Action can be taken by 12 April 2013 to request examination on existing patent applications, or to file and request examination on divisional, national phase entry and convention patent applications to ensure the more lenient patentability provisions of the present law will apply to those new applications.

    For further information regarding Raising the Bar, including a short video summarising the changes, published articles and other tools to assist you in preparing for the changes please visit the Davies Collison Cave website.
