Patent Appeal Board

The Patent Appeal Board has migrated the reporting of its decision to the Lexum/CanLII platform. I’ve finally updated my notifications for this platform so starting in today’s IPPractice email, and for the next several days I’ll be catching up on decisions issued since May of this year.

For subscribers to my email service, you can modify your preferences to receive Patent Appeal Board alerts if you are not already receiving them. If you are not a subscriber, please subscribe!

80% of these recent PAB decisions relate to patentable-subject matter and the patent applications subject to these decisions are rejected in all the decisions I reviewed.
