Intellectual Property in Australia, 6th edition established work features a new and expanded team of authors. It provides extensive commentary on the Productivity Commission’s proposals for sweeping changes to Australia’s intellectual property regimes, including the introduction of new rights to use or access copyright material and a higher threshold for the patentability of inventions. It also provides accessible explanations and analysis of the current regimes and their application in various commercial settings, while examining the trends and tensions that influence future changes to the Australian intellectual property system. Updates are also provided on other legislative reforms introduced since the fifth edition, relevant recommendations from the Harper Review of competition law, and the Turnbull Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda.

In addition, the new edition analyses a wide range of recent cases. Many recent important decisions are discussed, including the availability of orders to require internet service providers to disable access to overseas websites that facilitate copyright infringement, the patentability of isolated genetic material, and the nature and scope of patent licences.
