Abstract

The Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) creates a new national system to regulate the creation and enforcement of security interests over personal property in Australia. This paper explores how this system will apply to security interests over registered trade marks. It argues that there are a number of aspects of the new system that will not operate as intended and that attempts to make the system operate more efficiently are likely to be frustrated by reluctance to create linkages between bureaucratic agencies.

Keywords: Trade Marks, Security Interests, Personal Property Securities Act 2009
