Once your application is filed, it then runs through an examination process by IP Australia.
If the examiner is of the view that there are grounds for rejecting your application, you will receive an Adverse Report.
The most common objections raised are:
You usually have 15 months from the date of the Adverse Report to overcome those objections for your application to be accepted.
Quite often, there are options to overcome the objections so don’t write off your application just yet.
Feel free to get in touch with us and we’ll give you our advice as to the options, prospects of success and costs for dealing with those objections.
We have a lot of experience dealing with IP Australia examiners and overcoming 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.
