Trademarks (TM) can be found in all aspects of our lives. From famous brand names to catchy jingles on the radio, these trademarks have value because their owners have invested time and money in ensuring that the trademark is well-known. If you are planning to start a business or looking to launch a new product or service, before you select a name or logo, consider speaking with a trademark (TM) lawyer or law firm to determine if you are able to use the name or logo design.

In Canada, trademarks are governed by the Trade-marks Act and its accompanying regulations. The legislation covers all marks that are used by a person to distinguish his or her goods and services from those of others. These marks may include brand names, logo design, colours, slogans and jingles to name a few examples.
To protect your trademark, you may want to speak with a trademark lawyer to determine whether you are able to and whether it is appropriate for you to register your trademark. Advantages to registering your trademark include evidence of the trademark belonging to you. The registration of a trademark normally lasts for fifteen (15) years at which time the trademark registration will need to be renewed in order for it to remain on the register.
