In Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd v Delap Impex Ltd [2013] FCA 600 the Federal Court of Australia has allowed Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd to serve documents out of Australia's jurisdiction after satisfactorily building a prima facie case against a Hungary-based company for selling Electrolux's appliances without authority and in contravention of Australian trade marks laws. The Court also allowed a substituted service of documents via email to one of the parties whose unwillingness to provide address made personal service impracticable.
