Intellectual Property/International Law: Canadian Federal Court Declares "One-Click" Order Method Patentable

On October 14, the Canadian Federal Court held, in, Inc. v. Canada (Attorney General), No. T-1476-09, that Amazon's "one-click" online ordering system was a "business method" that was patentable under section 2 of the Patent Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. P-4. In doing so, the Federal Court overruled a decision by the Canadian Patents Commissioner. Copies of the decision are available in English and French.
