Public Record - Aftermath of the Harvard Mouse Case


The Intellectual Property Institute of Canada holds its ninth Spring Continuing Education Symposium on Intellectual Property Law, Ottawa, Ont. April 14, 2003. In a panel discussion, experts debate the need for patent law reforms in light of the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in the so-called “Harvard Mouse Case” (in which the court ruled that higher life forms cannot be patented). The participants are David Morrow (partner at Smart & Biggar/Fetherstonhaugh & Company), Bertrand Bolduc (president of BioQuébec), Michelle Swenarchuk (director of the Canadian Environmental Law Association), and Reverend Canon Eric Beresford (Canadian Council of Churches). CPAC’s Ken Rockburn moderates the discussion.
