There have been several recent legislative changes to Canada's IP regime that will have a profound impact on the North American marketing strategies for U.S. companies.  Whether looking at brand protection, trademark and copyright licensing, counterfeit and pirated goods, or IP enforcement, these revisions will be relevant to any IP or licensing professional.

Even if Canada is not a primary market for your goods and services, these changes open the door for trademark squatters, and there are steps that you can take now to prevent squatters and pirates from stealing  your valuable brand identity.  

Rob will discuss these changes and provide suggestions for implementing the appropriate strategies.  Rob is one of the leading trademark lawyers in Canada, The Canadian Legal Lexpert Directory, and the National Post.  He teaches IP law at the University of Alberta Law School and speaks extensively on IP law topics. 


Cancellations are non-refundable after October 15.  Substitutions are accepted.  Contact Dana Whitley at 703-234-4054 for assistance.
