This is an interesting Australian Patent Office decision insofar as it reveals the deliberations of the
Office in deciding whether to allow a party to patent opposition proceedings to serve further
evidence on another. In what was admittedly a ‘line ball’ decision, it becomes clear how critical it is
for there to be a clear explanation of the significance of evidence, particularly in circumstances
where there is seen to be delay in preparation and service of further evidence.
