Also from the Commonwealth – a Canadian Blog

I have just come across a good Canadian IP blog by Sander Gelsing called “Now, why didn’t I think of that?” According to his bio, Sander practises with Sisson Warren Sinclair in Red Deer, Alberta as a barrister and solicitor, patent and trade mark agent.

Skimming through his blog the following took my fancy:
Canadian and U.S. Patent Law Differences on 11 Oct 2005 (a good cross-reference – to my untrained English eyes Canadian patent law looks even more different than American law);
Wyrd Trade-mark Lawsuit on 4 Oct 2005 about a claim by a Winnipeg folk group against Warner Brothers, Radiohead and Pulp for C$40 million and an order to prevent the latest Harry Potter movie from being shown in Canada (the comments are interesting too); and
Patents curb Competition on 27 Sep 2005 about Eli Lilly & Co. and Apotex Inc on the interrelation between IP and competition.

There is of course much, much more. I commend this site unhesitatingly.


About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
