105 Amendment of patent granted to deceased person or to body corporate that has been liquidated or wound up


This section applies if, at any time after a patent has been granted, the Commissioner is satisfied that the person to whom the patent was granted—


had died before the patent was granted; or


in the case of a body corporate, had ceased to exist before the patent was granted.


The Commissioner may amend the patent by substituting for the name of that person the name of the person to whom the patent should have been granted.


The patent has effect, and is to be treated as always having had effect, in accordance with that amendment.
