The Australian Publishers Association is applying to IP Australia and the ACCC to consider a logo and associated Rules of Use for a Certified Trade Mark.
The purpose of the logo is to identify the author and illustrator of the title as Australian. The logo, if approved, will be made available to qualifying publishers to use on qualifying titles across print, ebook and audiobook.
The aim is to promote and celebrate to the public those works that are conceived by Australian creators.
Collaborative work will be done with booksellers, authors and librarians, to disseminate the meaning of this logo that will feature on the back of eligible titles.
All aspects of the administration will be managed by the Australian Publishers Association. Please contact the APA if you have any questions.
