The principal recommendation of OSIA's October 2013 submission to the ACIP review of the innovation patent system was to abolish it. Whilst ACIP initially declined to make a firm recommendation on the future of the innovation patent system in Australia, following IP Australia's publication of quantative research in the area in May 2015, ACIP amended their report with a revised recommendation in line with OSIA's. The MInister subsequently directed IP Australia to conduct a further round of consultation on ACIP's revised recommendation. On 25 September 2015, OSIA lodged a submission with IP Australia, supporting ACIP's revised recommendation and again also calling for software to be excluded from patentability altogether.
