This research paper presents a comprehensive comparative overview of the legal frameworks governing patent protection in India and Canada, offering a focused legal perspective. The study examines key aspects related to obtaining, registering, and maintaining patents in both countries, alongside an assessment of patent search and information facilities. The enforceable patent protection term, crucial to inventors and innovators, is critically analyzed. Furthermore, the paper explores the mechanisms for monitoring and addressing patent infringement and the potential consequences of patent revocation. Through a meticulous examination of primary and secondary sources, including domestic laws and relevant case studies, this research highlights the similarities, differences, strengths, and weaknesses of the patent systems in India and Canada. The findings aim to contribute valuable insights for policymakers, legal practitioners, and stakeholders to improve and harmonize patent protection regimes, fostering innovation and promoting cross-jurisdictional collaboration.
