What Precautions Do I Need to Take to Protect My Trademark?
Precaution to safeguard your trademark:
- You should also watch for new trademark applications through CIPO. Sometimes an examiner will approve a new trademark application, even though it could be a conflict with your previously filed trademark. If you do not file an official opposition, the other mark could be registered without your trademark being taken into consideration.
- Certain lawyers and trademark agents offer services to watch for trademark infringement, but this can be quite expensive.
- Running a NUANS trademark report every few months is a cost-effective way to watch for new businesses and new trademark applications across Canada.
