Have you received an adverse initial report from IP Australia when applying for a trade mark through Trade Mark Headstart?
This means it’s unlikely your trade mark will succeed to full registration. From here, you may submit a new “trade mark representation”, which is a different version of your trade mark, for a better chance of success.

A new trade mark representation is part of the Trade Mark Headstart process. If you receive an adverse report for part 1 of TM Headstart, you can resubmit your application with a different “representation”. This means a new version of the trade mark. Often, part 1 of the report will state why the original trade mark was unlikely to succeed. This feedback should be taken on board when deciding on a new representation. Our IP lawyers will suggest some options that may be more successful.
This package involves resubmitting part 1 of the TM Headstart process with a new version of the trademark. It includes government fees for submitting a new representation.
