Patent Amendments

The long awaited amendments to the Patent Act and Rules came into force today. Hopefully by now, none of my subscribers need a summary of the changes.

Some resources:

  • “New” Patent Act (as far as I know, there is no current version of the Patent Act, as amended, available on DOJ or CanLII – please let me know if there is one)
  • “New” Patent Rules
  • “New” MOPOP – includes designation of WIPO’s DAS as a digital library for priority documents
