Kaitlyn Ellison is a design blogger/reporter who put together a nice series of 5 fun copyright cases. My favorite is the one about Vanilla Ice, since I like all the artists involved. Call me an eighties gal…
I came across this reference as I was stumbling through, or rather DRAGGING myself through, the Canadian Trade-marks Examination Manual. It is quite interesting that when one files a trade-mark application, your statement of entitlement suggests that you are not infringing any other law! Hot buttons include the Canada Post Corporation Act; The Bank Act;
The Act to incorporate The Canadian Council of the Girl Guides Association;
and An Act for the protection of the Dionne Quintuplets;
The Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act;
The Competition Act;
The Food and Drugs Act; and
The Precious Metals Marking Act.
