New Edition Highlights

  • Discussion of changes to trademark practice arising from Bill C-4, which received Royal Assent on March 13, 2020 and came into force on July 1, 2020, implementing CUSMA. Amendments include an extension of the border enforcement measures relating to counterfeit goods caught in-transit through Canada, which are currently excluded from the importation and exportation provisions, and a deemed infringement provision for clear cases of counterfeit products being imported into Canada on a commercial scale, which streamlines the process for registered trademark owners to obtain a finding of infringement
