Once your application is filed, it is run through an examination process by IP Australia. If the examiner believes there are grounds for rejecting your application, you will receive an Adverse Report.
The most common objections raised are:
You have 15 months from the date of the Adverse Report to place your application in order for acceptance.
Quite often, there are options to overcome the objections so don’t write off your application just yet. Get in touch with us and we’ll give you options and costs for dealing with the objections.
You have to consider what the examiner has highlighted and potentially amend the classes and activities or gather evidence of use to overcome the objections.
We speak to a lot of the examiners and can usually find a way to overcome the objections or at least try and get some registered protection.
