If you fail to actually use the mark for a long time, your registration may be taken off of the Register of Trademarks, which will make it more difficult to prove legal ownership of the trademark. Read about how to register trademarks outside of Canada later in this Guide.
What you can and cannot register as a trademark What you can register You can register any trademark that does not contravene the Trademarks Act. For more detailed information, see the Trademarks Act. What you can't register Trademarks that are generally unregistrable include the following: Names and surnames A trademark may not be registered if it is nothing more than a name or surname.
An exception is if you can prove that your goods or services have become well known under the name or surname so that the word has acquired a second meaning in the public mind.
Clearly descriptive marks You may not register a trademark that clearly describes a characteristic or quality of your goods or services. For example, the words "sweet" for ice cream, "juicy" for apples, and "perfectly clean" for dry-cleaner services could not be registered as trademarks.
All apples could be described as "juicy" and all ice cream as "sweet"; these are natural characteristics of the items. If you were allowed to register these words, no other apple sellers or ice cream vendors could use them to promote their goods, and that would be unfair. But, again, if you can establish that "Sweet Ice Cream" has become so well known that people will immediately think of your product and no one else's when they read or hear these words, you may be allowed to register the trademark.
Deceptively misdescriptive marks You cannot register a trademark that is deceptively misleading. For example, you could not register "cane sugar" for candy sweetened with artificial sweetener or "air express" for a courier service that uses ground transportation. Place of origin You may not register a trademark that describes the geographical location where the goods or services come from. Allowing you to use such place names as your trademark would mean you are the only one who can use the geographical place name, and that would be unfair to others who trade in that place.
For example, you could not register "Italy" for lasagna. Also, you may not register a word that misleads the public into thinking that the goods or services come from a certain place when they do not. For example, you could not register "Paris Fashions" or "Denmark Furniture" as a trademark for goods or services if they did not come from there. Words in other languages You may not register trademarks that are the name, in any language, of the goods or services associated with your trademark.
For example, you would not be able to register the word "gelato" Italian for "ice cream" in association with frozen confections; "anorak" Inuktitut for "parka" in association with outerwear; or "wurst" German for "sausage" in association with meat.
Confusing with a registered or pending trademark Beware of trademarks that are similar to another trademark that is registered or is the subject of a previously-filed application. If your trademark is confusingly similar to a registered trademark or a pending trademark, it will be refused.
Trademark examiners look at many things when they decide whether trademarks are confusing, including: whether the trademarks look or sound alike and whether they suggest similar ideas whether the trademarks are used to market similar goods or services Let's go back to the example of "North Pole" ice cream. Suppose another company were manufacturing and selling frozen-water products under the registered trademark "South Pole.
That could mean your application to register "North Pole" would be turned down because it could cause confusion with the registered mark "South Pole," which is owned by another company. For more information on confusingly similar trademarks, you can refer to subsection 6 5 of the Trademarks Act.
Trademarks that are identical to, or likely to be mistaken for, prohibited marks You may not register a trademark that is identical or similar to certain official marks unless you have the permission from the organization that controls the mark. These official marks include: official government designs e. For example, your trademark may not include profane language, obscene visuals or racial slurs.
You may not use portraits and signatures of living people or people who have died within the last 30 years. For example, using the photo of an existing rock group to promote your record store is not allowed unless you have their permission. A few other things you cannot do You cannot register a trademark if it consists of a plant variety denomination when a right is granted to the owner for control over the multiplying and selling of reproductive material for a particular plant variety or is a mark so nearly resembling a plant variety denomination that it is likely to be mistaken for it, where the application covers the plant variety or another plant variety of the same species.
You cannot register a trademark that indicates the geographical origin of a wine, spirit, or agricultural product or food unless your goods are from that geographical area. For example, you could not register the trademark "Okanagan Valley" if the wine you are making is from Ontario.
Who can apply for registration? In order to be entitled to registration of a trademark, an applicant must be a "person". A "person" may be an individual, partnership, trade union, association, joint venture, or corporation. How long does registration last? Your registration lasts for 10 years from the date of registration.
You may renew it every 10 years after that for a fee. How much does an application cost? You must pay an application fee when submitting your application for the registration of a trademark. What to consider before filing an application This guide will give you the basic information you need to file a trademark application.
However, the Registrar cannot write your application for you, give you legal or business advice, or do a search of trademarks for you. Search the Canadian Trademarks Database A good first step is to do a search of existing trademarks to check whether your trademark could be confusing with someone else's.
You do not have to do this, but it will help you know whether similar trademarks exist. If they do, you could end up infringing on someone's trademark, which could land you in court. You can do a search through the Canadian Trademarks Database.
The listings cover trademarks active and inactive , official marks and prohibited marks. As soon as the Registrar receives your application, it too becomes part of the public record. To do a proper search, you will have to check for different possible versions of the trademark that you want to register.
For a standard character trademark word or words , you should look for all possible spellings, including in French. Use our tutorial to make the most of your search.
Search trade names Before you go any further, you should also search trade names. Trade names are often used as trademarks - even if they are not registered.
Example of search trade names The name of your company is "North Pole. However, if the name "South Pole" has become known for frozen-water products, the company could argue that it has rights in the name "South Pole" as a trade name and also as a trademark.
The Registrar would not have the name "South Pole" in its trademark records because it does not register trade names. Please note that trade names can be recorded separately in each province under provincial legislation.
Therefore, there is no single, complete list of trade names in Canada.
Since searching trade names can be quite complex, we suggest that you hire a trademark agent to do the work for you. Consider hiring a registered trademark agent Preparing and following through on your trademark application can be a complex process.
Whoever does it needs a lot of knowledge about trademark law and how the Registrar's office works. Beware of unregistered trademark agents! They are not authorized to represent applicants in the prosecution of trademarks applications. A trademark agent will make sure that your application is properly written so that your trademark will be protected.
This is especially important if someone challenges your right to the trademark. You do not have to hire an agent but it is often advisable to do so. Once you have an agent, the Registrar will correspond with that person. If you cancel that arrangement, the Office will then correspond with you directly. You may change trademark agents or choose to no longer have one at any time.
The Registrar keeps a list of registered trademark agents but we cannot recommend any particular one to you. Filing a trademark application Preparing a trademark application the name and mailing address of the applicant a representation or description, or both, of the trademark a statement in specific and ordinary commercial terms of the goods and services associated with the trademark the statement of goods and services grouped according to the Nice Classification the application fee any other requirements specific to the type of trademark sought to be registered You must file a separate application for each trademark that you wish to register.
However, one application can cover a number of goods or services for a given trademark. Representation or description Your application must include a representation or description, or both, of the trademark which clearly indicates what is being sought for registration. The representation may contain more than one view of the trademark if multiple views are necessary for the trademark to be clearly defined. In addition, the representation must not exceed 8cmx8cm in size.
For colour trademarks or trademarks that are claiming colour s as a feature, representations must be submitted in colour, along with a description of the colour s and where they appear in the trademark.
For sound and moving image trademarks, an electronic representation and a description of the trademark is required. For more information on the representation and description requirements for non-traditional trademarks, please refer to the Practice notice on non-traditional trademarks.
