Mr. ANDERSON (Halton):
Since discussion of the act in general is in order, may I ask the minister: Would it be possible for
a patentee to lose his patent at the end of three years if he had not by that time commence! to manufacture under it?
Mr, RINFRET: He does not lose his
patent, but it is then open to any citizen to apply to the department for a license to manufacture the patented article, the patentee having failed to avail himself of the privilege granted to him.
