Fantastic post Dane, very useful information there. Just to add my 2c to the above comments about trademark registration – specifically the comment that it can take “6 months or more in some cases” – please note, in ALL cases it takes a minimum of 7.5 months from filing to registration in Australia; the process simple if all goes smoothly; In the event objections are raised in can get a bit tricky, so it would be encouraged at that stage to seek professional advice if unsure.

It is not uncommon to discover that applicants limit the goods/services to a narrower scope than actually required; biggest tip to self-filers – ensure all your goods/services are appropriately described in your application. You cannot add/expand your description later on and subsequent applications would ultimately be required in the event goods/services were left out.

Thanks for the feedback Jacqui & for also clearing up the Trademarking issue:)
