The PPSA will commence on 30 January 2012 when the Personal Property Securities Register (PPS Register) goes ‘live’.  The provisions of the PPSA are revolutionary in terms and will significantly alter legal title over personal property.  Every area of business will be affected.  In particular suppliers, sellers and distributors of goods by way of sale or consignment need to take immediate action.  Similarly hirers/lessors of plant and equipment and motor vehicles are immediately affected.


Session 6:  Intellectual Property & the PPSA

The application of the PPSA and the PPS Register to intellectual property (IP) continues to cause some confusion.  In this session we will deal with some of the misconceptions and explain the PPSA rules and exceptions as they apply to various forms of IP, including:

  • Key concepts and definitions
  • Licensing arrangements
  • Differences between the PPS Register and Patents, Trade Marks & Design registers
  • Will security interests on other IP registers transition to the PPS Register?
  • Benefits of registering IP on the PPS Register
  • Risks of not registering IP on the PPS Register
  • Impact of insolvency – losing ownership of IP.
