Wool Stocktake : AWI Annual Report 2016-17
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AWI has a portfolio of intellectual property (IP) assets comprising patents, plant breeders’ rights, trade marks, registered designs, business names, copyright, domain names, and unregistered/confidential know-how. Some of these assets are owned jointly with other organisations, including Government departments, statutory corporations, CSIRO and commercial R&D companies. In addition to the above IP assets, AWI is the beneficial owner of all IP assets owned by The Woolmark Company Pty Limited (TWC) and its associated entities. These include the WOOLMARK logo, WOOLMARK BLEND logo and WOOL BLEND logo which are registered in more than 90 countries across multiple classes of goods. IP is an important company asset. AWI's objective is to control and manage its IP to the maximum benefit of Australian woolgrowers by ensuring rapid, widespread adoption or commercialisation of its IP along the wool supply chain. AWI seeks to develop revenue from IP and invest it back into R&D and marketing on behalf of woolgrowers. Royalty income from IP assets owned by AWI (excluding TWC assets) contributed $95,560.64 to the 2016/17 income being royalties received from 2014/2015. Income earned from the 2015/2016 royalties will not be realised until midway through the 2017/2018 financial year.
