Mr. GLASS:

Here is a case of a patentee who registered and obtained his patent in Canada in 1913. That patent was good for six years and expired in 1919. Now, by the treaty of Versailles he had the right, providing he paid the fees, to revive that patent at any time after the passing of that Act, that is January, 1921, and he had a further period within one year from that date in which to commence manufacture. I want to understand why, because the United States has passed certain legislation requiring reciprocal legislation on our part, we want to reach out beyond their requirements and extend facilities of revival to a man like that.
