INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ARRANGEMENTS
The design patent with IP Australia is currently held by the designer, Tony Burton, for the sole purpose of protecting the design and to avoid exploitation of the design by retailers with no association with the ASSI community. As conveyed previously by the designer to the community, it is the intention of the designer to transfer the design and patent to an ASSI agency constituted for that purpose. Whilst the current intellectual property rights over the design, and/or the variations of its here published may change in the future, in order to promote the orderly development and usage of the flag, the designer, with the assistance of Flags Australia, has arranged for the manufacturing of the flag under licence and will grant approvals for reproductions of the flag in print and other media. Any fees or sale margin on such arrangements received by the designer or Flags Australia will be used to cover costs, and any profit returned to the ASSI community's agency when constituted. In the meantime, all enquires should be directed off line to www.flagsaustralia.com.au/Contact.html.
