As many Americans have said upon visiting Canada, ”it’s like the United States, but… different.” The same thing can be said for Canadian trademark law. In this webinar, Nathan Haldane of Fasken discusses the differences between trademark practice in Canada and the United States and provides you with all the information you need to advise your clients about filing in Canada. The realities of e-commerce mean that it is easier than ever to build your brand within Canada, and companies should consider Canada as a necessary part of any international brand strategy. Nathan sets out when and why businesses should begin applying for trademarks in Canada and what they can expect once they have done so. Topics include:
- Prosecution of an application
- Opposition and enforcement
- Cannabis trademarks and advertising (it’s completely legal here)
- What to advise American clients regarding protecting their trademarks in Canada
