In 1993, the Government of Canada enacted the "Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations", SOR/93-133 (the "PMNOC Regulations"). The public policy goals behind these regulations were many. If putting an end to the litigation wars pitting generic drug manufacturers against the major drug firms (sometimes called "originators") was one of them, it would appear that peace is taking its time to break out. Perhaps, as with the outcome of the French Revolution, it is too soon to tell.
