If you have a security interest in intellectual property such as a mortgage over a patent or trade mark, you must register that interest on the PPS Register in order to protect and enforce it.
Security interests recorded on IP Australia’s registers are not being automatically transferred to the PPS Register. As the transitional period has now ended, it is important to register your interest as soon as possible.
If you would like more information about the PPSR or whether an interest in intellectual property is a PPS interest, contact the specialised legal team at Matthews Folbigg in Parramatta.
