Abstract

[Excerpt] Up until recently, Australian courts have avoided deciding whether software can appropriately be classed as "goods". However, in Amlink Technologies Pty Ltd and Australian Trade Commission [2005] AATA 359, Senior Member McCabe held that software sold as a tangible commodity, after being copied or mass-produced, ceases to be know-how and becomes goods.
