Mr ENTSCH (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources) (12:10 PM) —The amendments made by the Designs (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2002 are essential to ensure the new designs system is implemented properly. There are many other acts that refer to the designs legislation or the designs system, so these references need to be revised in light of the changes that will be made by the introduction of the new designs system. Of particular importance is the fact that the amendments in this bill to the Copyright Act 1968 will improve the operation of provisions that limit the overlap between designs and copyright protection.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
