Report on the appropriateness of legislation protecting functional objects / by Roger T. Hughes, Hugues G. Richard..: RG43-45/1991E-PDF
"This Report examines the question as to whether it is appropriate that Canada adopt legislation for the protection of the shape and design of objects that are largely if not entirely functional but do not have the necessary attributes as to patentability. It is the recommendation of the authors of this Report that, in view of the lack of specific treaty obligations, the lack of an international consensus and in view of the lack of any clear demand from the business community, there is no need for Canada, at present, to move to adopt such legislation"--Abstract.
