Canadian Patent Update: Modernizing our IP Framework
In attempt to support innovation, the Government of Canada has attempted to modernize its IP framework and has put forward a report, entitled Modernizing the IP Community, containing recommendations dealing specifically with patent and trademark agents. For example, it puts forward the need for agents to maintain continuing professional development to keep current. These recommendations are open to consultation until December 9th and can be found on CIPO's website.
