Meetup #114 – Update to Trademark & Design Law

May 14, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Trademark and Industrial Design Law Changes

The Canadian Trademarks Act has been amended to enable Canada to accede to the Singapore Treaty, the Madrid Protocol and the Nice Agreement, as well as to modernize Canada’s trademark regime. These amendments will come into force on June 17, 2019.

Trademarks and industrial designs are two powerful forms of intellectual property protection.  Join us as we discuss recent developments, practical strategies and best practices with Bereskin & Parr’s Mina Chana and Matthew Graff.  This session will cover:

  • Understanding trademarks – the Basics
  • Upcoming changes to Canada’s Trademark regime (coming in to force June 17, 2019)
  • Enforcement strategies
  • Trademark protection in Canada and abroad
  • Design protection basics and recent updates to Canadian law
  • The Hague System for international registration
  • Design protection for GUIs

As a leading Canadian IP firm with extensive experience in all aspects of intellectual property, Bereskin & Parr has become renowned in Canada and internationally for their work and specialized expertise.
