Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Is it necessary that we should require an address within the Comonwealth to be furnished in respect of notice of opposition?

Mr McCay - Yes, we might otherwise have vexatious opposition.

Mr Isaacs - Suppose a man gave , "South America" as an address for service.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have in mind the position of a man living in the old country, who registers a trade mark here. Why should he be called upon to give an address within the Commonwealth ?

Mr Isaacs - If such men desire to secure an Australian right they ought to give some address in Australia to which notice of opposition may be sent.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - A trade mark might have changed hands, and the owner of it might be living, abroad.

Mr Isaacs - If A applies for registration, and B opposes him, A at once says : " I wish to fight you, and therefore desire to know at what address in Australia a notice may be served upon you."
