Date Published

Occasionally, events surrounding an opposition result in some confusion as to the status of material filed or served, and/or what actions are required next.  See for example, Leonardis v St Alban 24 IPR 351, (1992) AIPC 90-929.

In such circumstances the Commissioner will use the directions mechanism to rectify the situation.
