Filing for a trademark can protect your business in several ways.
The trademark owner is the sole entity who can use it or grant others to use it.
There is great power in a brand name. You stop imitators from emerging and using your brand name.
Brand holds a deep value in the market. If another entity, carrying your name, tarnishes your brand, it will affect your business. However, because you have complete control over your trademark name or symbol, such a scenario won’t emerge.
The Registrar of Trademarks from the Canadian Intellectual Property Office is responsible for accepting trademarks.
A trademark application has to be prepared and submitted to Trademarks Office. The Office will proceed to examine the trademark application. This is a lengthy process which also includes allowing any entity to oppose the trademark application.
If the Registrar Office is satisfied with the trademark application, you earn a certificate of trademark.
