Page 62.–Refer to the following observations for pp. 130, 131.
Page 130.—The power to the mortgagor to grant licences might be made exercise-

able not only up to the time when the power of sale should first become exerciseable, but also beyond that time, until the mortgagee shall give notice in writing to the mortgagor that he determines the power. The power of attorney might be made an irrevocable power for the prescribed period under sects. 8, 9 of the Conveyancing Act, 1882 (post, p. 384). Such a power would, no doubt, from the circumstances of the case, be held to have been given for valuable consideration. As a mortgage is registered simply as an assignment (post, p. 132, n.), the mortgagee can alone grant valid licences, subject to the question of notice as to equities. See sect. 87 of the new Act, post, p. 322. The power of attorney should, of course, enable the mortgagor to receive the royalties under each licence until the mortgagee, consistently with the other provisions in the power, shall, by notice in writing served on the licensee, require the

future sums to be paid to himself. Page 131.-The power to the mortgagee to grant licences might be made exerciseable

only after he shall have given notice in writing to the mortgagor that he claims

to be entitled to exercise the same. Page 165, line 4 from the bottom. After the word “owners” add (within the

bracket), “and 'estate and interest as aforesaid,' instead of share.'

Last line but one. After the word “owner" add but providing that the parties shall contribute in the same proportions as provided in the case of fees

as aforesaid.'In the same line, substitute "and" for the last word but." Pages 169, 170.-As to the power of the mortgagor to grant licences, refer to the

above observations for p. 130. As to the power of the mortgagee to grant

licences, refer to the above observations for p. 131. Page 289, note (d).—The covenant might be as follows:-" And that he the said

A. B. will not during the continuance of this licence do or knowingly suffer any act matter or thing whereby the said licence dated &c. may become

determined or revoked." Page 297, Form IV.—The memorandum is to be supposed to be entered on the

register in pursuance of a proviso in the power of revocation that “the licensee shall be at liberty at any time thereafter to sign and enter or cause to be entered on the register at the Patent Office a memorandum that this lice had become revoked as aforesaid.” In the form, for the word “ agreement" write “ licence."
