Introduction to the Australian Trademark Registration System
  1. ​In Australian law, a trademark is a sign that distinguishes goods or services from other goods or services, including words, sounds, smells, three-dimensional shapes, colours, graphics, and movements.

  2. Australian trademark registration is not compulsory, but registered trademarks may prohibit others from using trademarks that do not materially differ and may cause confusion on the same or similar products. “Well Known” trademarks can also extend protection to unrelated goods or services.

  3. After the Australian trademark has been registered for 5 years, if it has not been used for 3 consecutive years, any third party may request to cancel the trademark.

  4. Multiple similar signs for the same goods/services can be submitted as a single trademark application. This packaged trademark application can facilitate the applicant to have an overall protection over their brand.

Why Register an Australian Trademark?

1. Expanding overseas markets
The protection of overseas intellectual property rights is strict, and it is difficult to go overseas without registering overseas trademarks.

​2. Protect your own brand
​IIf you do not register an overseas trademark, your brand will be subject to the risk of being registered or used by others.

3. Entering overseas e-commerce
​Necessary brand protection options for trading on Amazon, AliExpress, Ebay, and Wish.

​4. International Brand Presence
​A trademark shows brand strength and enhances competitiveness.

Q&A

If the Australian trademark is withdrawn due to lack of distinctiveness, is there still a chance to save it?

Yes, if you are experiencing significant problems when registering in many countries or regions around the world, you can prove the distinctiveness by submitting evidence of usage. Among them, the Australian Intellectual Property Office has a higher degree of recognition in regards to the effectiveness of the evidence of trademark usage.

Can the trademark application be modified after it is submitted?

The trademark offices of countries around the world generally do not allow the modification of the logo itself. Australia is no exception. The applicants, contact addresses and other information of the trademarks are allowed to be modified. Modifications are not allowed to increase or expand the scope of their coverage.
