Author(s): Gabriel Melançon
This article presents a review of five cases of interest that marked Canadian case law on non-pharmaceutical patents during the year 2020. The selected decisions are diverse in nature. They deal respectively with the valuation methods that the Canadian Intellectual Property Office should use, certain statements that are not admissible as evidence in litigation, the accounting of profits as a remedy for patent infringement, the powers of the Federal Court to interpret a contract in order to determine the ownership of a patent, and the legitimacy of a no-challenge clause in a settlement agreement.
