oa De Rebus - Patent attorney and patent agent
You will see that the sub-section precludes any person not registered as a patent agent from descriptionbing himself as a patent attorney or patent agent. Attorneys are entitled to practice as patent agents in terms of 'Section 90 of the Act but unless they are registered as patent agents they cannot use the titles mentioned in sub-section 3 of Section 93. My Council is aware of at least one instance where a firm of attorneys unjustifiably descriptionbe themselves as ""Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys."" If only for the purpose of alerting your members to the penalties set out in Sub-Section 4 of Section 90 my Council feels justified in bringing this matter to your attention.
