CA: Procédures de réexamen de brevet en sursis en attendant les résultats d’un procès de contrefaçon/attaque en validité

Prenbec Equipment Inc. v. Timberblade Inc., 2010 FC 23, (January 8, 2010)

Dont voici la conclusion pertinente: 

[48] Moreover, as stated earlier, when determining whether to grant a stay, preference should be given to the proceedings which are more comprehensive of the two. In this regard, for reasons expressed above, re-examination proceedings are unequivocally less comprehensive as compared to an infringement/invalidity action before this Court.

[49] For all of the foregoing reasons, I am therefore of the view that it is in the interest of justice that a stay of the re-examination proceedings be granted pending the outcome of the present action before this Court.
