Intellectual Property Proceedings in Federal Court for 2022

Many of the intellectual properties proceedings in Canada are litigated in the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal. I have created the following list of proceedings based on listings provided by the Federal Courts website.

The Federal Court identifies the ‘type’ of proceeding (such as ‘Patent Infringement’) which can be used to identify IP proceedings but this is often incomplete because some PM(NOC) applications are coded as generic Judicial Reviews rather than as specifically IP. I have attempted to compensate for this by creating my own list of frequent PM(NOC) litigants and flagging those as IP regardless of the Federal Courts listing. The Federal Court occasionally incorrectly codes proceedings, such as marking proceedings as ‘patent’ when they are clearly a trade-mark proceeding – I have not corrected these errors – which affects the summary statistics contained below.
