10.2
What limits can a patent owner impose on a licence?
 
Canada
As a general rule, a patentee is free to license or not license its patent as it so chooses. In some circumstances, however, a patentee’s licensing activities may have consequences under competition law. For example, if a patentee’s refusal to grant a licence is coupled with activity that goes beyond the scope of its patent rights, then there may be a violation of competition laws.
