See for example our Facebook publication of a February 2017 Federal Court decision, where a trademark owner had their trademark rights reversed (removed) by Court order after 7 years of apparent ownership of a Trademark with IP Australia.
The Director was personally sued and found to be personally liable for compensation despite the fact he had traded as a company.
Hiding behind the corporate veil was deemed unacceptable.
Many clients move to us from other firms because our experience gets results and reduces liability/risk.
Inexperienced or unqualified representatives may be cheaper, BUT:
After 8-18 months of waiting, all your invested money could be wasted with inexperienced agents, and land you into an expensive conflict, require repeated filings or no longer be protectable.
D.I.Y. INEXPERIENCE LEADS TO IP failures
The common errors we find are:
- filing errors which are not picked up,
- ineffective responses to objections, or
- file responses which unwittingly support the Trademark Office objection(s) rather than supporting your (the client's) position.
