What are the trademark laws in Australia?
Australia's trademark laws are primarily governed by the Trade Marks Act 1995. They allow entities to register symbols, names, logos, sounds, or scents distinguishing goods/services. Registered trademarks grant exclusive rights to use, license, and sell the mark for ten years, renewable. Infringements can be contested through legal action. Registration also provides a basis for overseas registration. While registration is not compulsory, it offers enhanced protection against unauthorised use. Our IP specialists can guide through registration, protection, and enforcement processes.
