IP Australia is seeking information from users of the Australian Patent system that file for computer-related inventions. They have heard from some users that recent court decisions have not provided certainty on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions. The concern is that this uncertainty affects innovative businesses’ IP strategies and commercial activities.

FICPI Australia will make a submission on behalf of members here in Australia and Internationally.

The FICPI submission will cover:

  1. any challenges current laws have for Australian industries
  2. case studies where the law in Australia or overseas has changed the investments or IP strategies regarding computer-implemented inventions
  3. examples of where the patentability of specific inventions has differed between Australia and other jurisdictions
  4. any views on changing or retaining current Australian law.

Submissions should be received no later than 29 February 2024, so please submit your thoughts and any evidence to the FICPI Australia Secretary Rohan Wallace at [email protected] as soon as possible.
