Canadian Patent Update: Bill C-43 & the Patent Act

On Thursday, Bill C-43 was introduced that amends the Patent Act to make it consistent with the Patent Law Treaty. In summary, these amendments include:
  • Reduced requirements in regards to obtaining a filing date for a patent application
  • Notifying an applicant of a missed due date prior to the application becoming abandoned
  • Making provisions so that "a patent may not be invalidated for non-compliance with certain requirements relating to the application on the basis of which the patent was granted."
