The Progressive Conservative government published a regulation establishing Intellectual Property Ontario (IPO) on Tuesday. It will provide client firms with advice about IP trends and issues; conduct prior art searches on their behalf; and fund them to protect and commercialize inventions by, for example, playing for lawyers and patent agents. The Globe and Mail first reported the regulation. (The Logic, The Globe and Mail)
