About this Webinar
You’re a Canadian company ready to tackle foreign markets — but wait! Have you thought about how you are going to protect your company’s intellectual property (IP) abroad? IP rights are jurisdictional and there are things you need to consider before taking your products and services to other countries. This seminar will highlight key considerations and differences between Canada and other markets (USA, China, India, Mexico) in the registration and protection process for IP. Learn how to recognize, register and enforce your IP rights in those countries
