Have Your Say: Patent Infringement Advocacy Poll

++ Action Item: Please review the background on CATA's Patent Infringement Advocacy Poll and then Have Your Say on-line at:

Background: Companies that have employed Veterans and Reservists working full time in the private sector (de facto classified as public servants) must now seek permission from the federal government before applying for a patent for their inventions if an inventor is on a supplementary reserve list. That means any patent that has been issued and currently thought to be owned by a Canadian corporation where a named inventor is retired CAF (Canadian Armed Forces) on a supplementary reserve list may in fact be owned by the government.

Have Your Say!

How should retired CAF (Canadian Armed Forces) members on a supplementary reserve list be classified?
