(b)  

ASIC is satisfied, within a reasonable period after the order is lodged, that:

(i) no application for the stay of the order is pending; and

(ii) no appeal of the order is pending; and

(iii) the order is not stayed; and

(iv) the order has not been overturned on appeal.

51(3)  


Nothing in this section limits any orders that a court may make (in an action for an infringement of trade mark or otherwise) in relation to the registration of a business name, or ASIC ' s obligations under such orders.
