Venturous Australia is a report published in 2009 in Australia. It was written by Terry Cutler, for Minister for Innovation Kim Carr and is published on the government's Department of Innovation website under the title "Report on the Review of the National Innovation System".

Relevant to software patents policy, it says:

In this regard, particularly in new areas of patenting such as software and business methods, there is strong evidence that existing intellectual property arrangements are hampering innovation.

From the archive.org copy of the August 2008 version of the page:[1]

On 22 January 2008, the Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Senator Kim Carr, announced a wide ranging review of Australia's national innovation system to be conducted by an expert panel chaired by Dr Terry Cutler.

After the publication of this report, in September 2009, the Australian government's Advisory Council on Intellectual Property (ACIP) held a consultation on what things should be patentable. An analysis of the submissions can be read at Australian consultation responses 2009.
