This may be of interest. 

I came across it in the print version of the Age today. I have copied
most of it below. 




The Advisory Council of Intellectual Property (ACIP) is an independent
body appointed by the Government. The council advises the Federal
Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources on high level policy
matters relating to patents, trade marks, industrial designs and plant
breeder's rights, and the strategic administration of IP Australia.

A large part of the Council's work involves conducting reviews into
various aspects of the IP system, and making recommendations to the
Government to ensure Australia's IP system benefits all Australians.
Further information from www.acip.gov.au 

Expressions of interest are invited from persons who wish to be
considered to serve on ACIP. The Government is seeking individuals with
appropriate knowledge and experience of IP matters, including obtaining,
managing, exploiting and protecting IP rights. The Government is
particularly interested in hearing from owners and users of IP rights
within small, medium and large business sectors, and from public and
private research bodies.

Appointments are usually for three years. The council meets 3 times per
year, and may form working groups for particular tasks, which meet as
required. Members receive a daily sitting allowance and reimbursement
for travel, accommodation and related expenses. 

Expressions of interest should include relevant biographical details and
a statement to indicate your experience, expertise and interest in the
field of IP. 

Expressions Close Wednesday 12 July 2006 and should be sent to:

The Secretary
Advisory Council on Intellectual Property
PO Box 200
Woden. ACT. 2606.
