Software Patents: Canadian Update

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has released a draft version of Chapter 16 of the Manual of Patent Office Practice (MOPOP), relating to “Computer-Implemented Inventions”. The chapter is open for public review and comments between June 16, 2010 and August 19, 2010 and is available through the MOPOP Updates web page. The current revision process provides more detailed guidance and examples regarding computer-implemented inventions. 

This development in Canada is being closely watched in parallel with the pending release of the Bilski review of business-method patents and computer-implemented inventions in the US.
