Patent Law in Australia Second Edition continues to be an indispensible guide to obtaining, maintaining, enforcing and challenging the validity of patents in Australia.

Balancing both the practical nature of Australian Patent Office processes and in-depth analysis of statute and case law, Patent Law in Australia Second Edition navigates every aspect of the patenting process, with detailed commentary on the law pertaining to each stage.

The Second Edition captures significant case law developments and legislative change since 2008. Among the issues that have been considered by the Federal Court are:

  • The test for anticipation;
  • Innovative step;
  • Patentable subject matter;
  • Inventorship and entitlement;
  • Extension of patent term; and
  • Contributory infringement.


In addition to case law, the Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Act 2012 and the Intellectual Property Laws Amendment (Raising the Bar) Regulation 2013 have made substantial changes to patent legislation, effective from 15 April 2013.
