HOW TO PROTECT YOUR
In Canada, you protect your intellectual property by submitting applications to the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.
This will protect creations of the mind including trademarks, copyright, patents, industrial designs, and trade secrets. The registration will prevent others from poaching or encroaching on your trademarks, patents or copyrights.
To be completely safe have a lawyer do this for you. You can usually get a flat price for preparing and submitting each application.
Intellectual property law deals with the rules for securing and enforcing legal rights including copyrights and patents, to inventions, designs, and artistic works.
The law protects ownership of tangible personal property and real estate, it also protects your Intellectual property and intangible assets.
The Canadian Intellectual Property Office is responsible for the administration and processing of the greater part of intellectual property in Canada. You need a lawyer to deal with complex government regulations.
CanLaw will find you the right lawyers and law firms. There is never any charge whatsoever for our service.
WHAT IS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, TRADEMARK AND
COPYRIGHT LAW ABOUT?
The Canada intellectual property office offers the following definitions:
"A TRADEMARK is a combination of letters, words, sounds or designs that distinguishes one company’s goods or services from those of others in the marketplace."
"PATENTS apply to newly developed technology as well as to improvements on products or processes. Patents provide a time-limited, legally protected, exclusive right to make, use and sell an invention. In this way, patents serve as a reward for ingenuity."
"COPYRIGHT is the exclusive legal right to produce, reproduce, publish or perform an original literary, artistic, dramatic or musical work. The creator is usually the copyright owner."
TRADEMARKS TAKE 2 YEARS TO OBTAIN
The Canadian government trade mark registration office takes 18 months to 2 years to investigate and issue a registered trademark, so get started now.
