J. Aust. 256 (2004). Subdivision D – Objection to the Determination of Geographical Indications on the Basis of Australia`s Existing Trademark Rights Tolerance of U.S. Applications to Extend Intellectual Property Rights Protection was consistent with its preconceived policy to this effect.12 Australia has attempted to improve access to us markets, facilitate North American foreign investment and improve the protection of its U.S. investments.
Australia has a relatively small right-wing industry, which has therefore sacrificed very little to achieve these objectives. Strengthening intellectual property rights is not expected to affect the Australian economy. Australian negotiators have tried to promote Australia`s trade liberalization policy and provide economic opportunities for Australian businesses. For example, Australia`s trade minister said that trading partners need space to fulfill their international obligations in a way that is consistent with their particular circumstances. Exposure to unequal bargaining power is one of the pitfalls of bilateral negotiations, unlike multilateral negotiations. Powerful states can ask for a lot and offer little in terms of market access. For example, from a Malaysian perspective, a U.S. free trade agreement may impede access to medicines, as ipY protection is greater than what is appropriate for its social and economic needs.93 Access to affordable medicines may be delayed or beyond the reach of Malaysians, and the desire to innovate cannot be properly discounted against public health. On December 6, 2017, the United States and Australia held the sixth joint committee meeting of the U.S.-Australia Free Trade Agreement to verify the implementation of the agreement, including specific issues related to trade in goods and services and issues related to intellectual property rights and investment.
