Join us for dinner to discuss trademark squatters, takedown notices, and evolving forms of unfair competition. The discussion will explore some of the tools available under the Trademarks Act and Competition Act for dealing with entities that attempt to usurp, profit from, or damage goodwill earned for both registered and unregistered trademarks. We will explore evolving case law about bad faith applications, registrations, and use of trademarks under sections 18(e), 38(2)(a.1) and 7(b) of the Trademarks Act and the provisions relating to false and misleading statements and passing off under sections 7(a), (c) and (d) of the Trademarks Act and section 52(1) of the Competition Act.
