Brought to you by the IPIC Young Practitioners Committee

Several years have now passed since the Federal Court of Appeal’s landmark decision regarding statutory subject matter in Canada (Attorney General) v. Amazon.com, Inc. and the subsequent adoption of new practice guidelines by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) regarding purposive construction and the assessment of what qualifies as statutory subject matter as defined in Section 2 of the Patent Act.

This webinar will provide practical, constructive guidance from experienced practitioners and CIPO Examiners regarding approaches and best practices for successfully addressing Section 2 objections during patent application prosecution. Speakers will address objections relating to computer-implemented inventions as well as diagnostic methods.
