Trademarks at the 2018 Ontario Craft Brewers Conference

Michele presented on trademarks to delegates at the 2018 Ontario Craft Brewers Conference in Toronto on November 7th.

In this presentation, she reviewed: (1) the brand elements that can qualify for trademark protection; (2) the process for clearing a proposed trademark prior to its adoption; (3) the process for registering trademarks in Canada to obtain national protection; and (4) the means of enforcing exclusive rights in a trademark, whether the mark is registered or unregistered.

The presentation was alot of fun and seemed to be well-received by the delegates who had lots of questions.

Michele especially enjoyed visiting the suppliers marketplace - the equivalent of Disneyland for a trademark lawyer! Alas, she drove in from Hamilton and had to keep the sampling to a minimum...
