New WA IP Policy
The Department of Commerce WA (Innovation Centre) has revised the WA Government Intellectual Property Policy. This revised policy encourages agencies to adopt AusGOAL where appropriate.
What is AusGOAL?
AusGOAL, the Australian Governments' Open Access and Licensing Framework, has been endorsed by the Western Australian Government to provide support and guidance to facilitate open access to publicly funded information where appropriate. AusGOAL makes it possible for agencies to manage their risks when publishing information and data in a way that drives innovation and entrepreneurial activities; providing enhanced economic and social benefits to the wider community. AusGOAL is also aligned with numerous open government initiatives around the world.
