Understanding the patenting process: Your interaction with IP Australia Salesh Swami, Kathy Wong 47 Bowes Street IP Australia Phillip, ACT, Australia email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org Research and development in the field of polymeric materials has come a long way. New ideas are born everyday. Some of them have amazing scientific and commercial prospects. More than ever there is need to have appropriate Intellectual Property (IP) protection for such innovations. But how to operate within this complex system? IP Australia is a government agency responsible for the operation of the Australian patent system, the provision of advice to the Australian government on IP, and the grant of Australian patents. This presentation will provide an overview of the patenting process via the national and international routes with a particular focus on the roles and responsibilities of both IP Australia and the applicant. The key legal concepts of novelty and inventiveness will be discussed in the context of polymer technology and the various forms of patent protection available under Australian Patent law canvassed. Finally the presentation will briefly discuss the role of IP Australia in promoting innovation in Australia, its co-operative initiatives with patent offices around the globe.
