Table des matières  


The first and second edition of Canadian Patent Law has garnered praise from patent and IP law practitioners. The book has proven to be a reliable practice guide for many patent lawyers and agents, and was cited numerous times in a landmark 2012 Supreme Court of Canada case. Now in its third edition, this book remains the only Canadian patent law text written from a patent prosecutor's perspective. The authors, both agents themselves, delve into the most fundamental legal and practical issues that Canadian patent lawyers and agents confront in everyday practice before the courts and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO). This gem of a book is written in a refreshingly clear, straightforward manner, helping patent practitioners resolve patent law problems found in even the most complex patent matter.
