在宽限期内申请澳大利亚外观设计
       我们在 2022 年 3 月 11 日发表的文章中提到,澳大利亚外观设计法新增的关于12个月宽限期的条款现已生效。在本文中,我们将进一步讨论如何使用该宽限期。        根据新增条款,申请宽限期需提交一份来自直接掌握相关情况和资料的人员的声明。换言之,如果您希望利用宽限期在审查过程中排除某些已公开的信息,则需要提供一份正式声明,描述这些信息在申请前已被公开的情况。该声明必须使用规定的格式,并且其内容所包含的相关信息与证据必须能清楚地显示该设计在某日被公开了。          用于申请外观宽限期的证据类型可以包括: 标有日期的在先内容公开的截屏。在相关时间节点由设计所有者管理的网页在互联网档案馆(WayBack Machine)上保存的截屏设计所有者在公开该设计的相关时间节点对其社交媒体账号或网站具有管理权限的声明确认书。销售信息和营销计划:比如标有日期的与预定的产品发布相关的信息,或者宣传资料的发布的关键日期等。社交媒体帐户的截屏以及这些帐户的管理员或控制人的历史记录。包含对员工或外部供应商的指示等内容的内部电子邮件的副本,比如包含在特定日期公开该设计的指示的电子邮件。能够证明该设计未经授权而遭到公开的相关信息和证据。能够证明该设计在相关时间节点已公开的照片或其他媒体资料,例如新闻报道等。         该声明可以在实质性审查期间(在答复审查报告时)或在审查之前的任何时候提交。澳大利亚知识产权局的在线提交服务现支持在提交外观申请的同时提供该声明。          请注意, 外观设计的宽限期仅适用于2022 年 3 月 10 日(当日)或之后公开或使用的外观设计。此外,宽限期不适用于经澳大利亚外观设计注册簿或海外外观设计数据库(例如,欧盟知识产权局)公开的内容。         如果您希望了解更多信息或者由我们帮您准备上述声明,请按此处联络我们的专业人员
