Intellectual Property Laws Amendment Bill 2006

Schedule 16 Statute law revision amendments


Patents Act 1990

1  Schedule 1 (definition of Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods )

Omit “17”, substitute “9A”.

Note:       This item corrects a cross-reference consequentially on the Therapeutic Goods Amendment (Medical Devices) Act 2002 repealing section 17 of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 , which provided for the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods, and inserting section 9A in that Act to provide for that register.

Trade Marks Act 1995

2  Subsection 84(2)

Repeal the subsection, substitute:

             (2)  Before cancelling the registration of the trade mark, the Registrar must notify in accordance with the regulations:

                     (a)  any person recorded under Part 11 as claiming a right in respect of, or an interest in, the trade mark; and

                     (b)  if:

                              (i)  an application has been made to the Registrar for a record of the assignment or transmission of the trade mark to a person to be entered in the Register (see section 109); and

                             (ii)  the assignment has not yet been recorded;

                            the person to whom the trade mark has been assigned or transmitted.

Note:       The text of the new and repealed subsections is identical but the indentation differs to fix a formatting error in the repealed subsection. The different indentation clarifies that the words after subparagraph 84(2)(b)(ii) relate only to paragraph 84(2)(b) and not to the whole of subsection 84(2).

3  Paragraph 206(2)(b)

Omit “paragraph (1)(a) or (b)”, substitute “subsection (1)”.

Note:       This item corrects a cross-reference consequentially on the removal of paragraphs 206(1)(a) and (b) by item 943 of Schedule 1 to the Public Employment (Consequential and Transitional) Amendment Act 1999 .
