Mr. ROBB:

No, this is very different.
The commissioner advises me that in the United States there are no conditions attached to the patent as regards manufacture and im, portation. They do the thing a little differently from the way we do it. We might as well be frank in regard to this. There has been a measure of protection under our Canadian law. In the United States it is wide open, and they give the protection through their custom houses. That is the difference in' the law as bewteen Canada and the United States.
