Important Update from INTA 2013 regarding the Canadian Trademark Factory
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

It’s official!

At the annual meeting of International Trademark Association, I’ve met with hundreds of trademark lawyers from around the world – from big firms, small firms, and mid-size firms – and no one, not a single one of them is offering anything closely resembling what Trademark Factory offers.

Just a reminder: we offer trademark registration in Canada at a single flat all-inclusive rate with a 100% money-back guarantee.

A comment from one of the lawyers I met today: “Well, this makes choosing the Trademark Factory a no-brainer!”

I agree.

Intellectual Property Workshop at DigiBC
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

On April 18, 2013, I will deliver a free 2.5-hour workshop on intellectual property in plain English for business owners.

This workshop is organized by DigiBC, the Digital Media and Wireless Association of British Columbia.

As an attendee, you will walk away not only with a ton of useful information about what different areas of intellectual property can do to and for your business, but also with several tangible tools that will allow you to start building the IP strategy for your business.

If you are running a business and don’t have a clear and viable IP strategy, this is a workshop that you can’t afford to miss!

To attend, you must register at http://mincovlaw2013.eventbrite.com/.

Standard Agreement Templates - Content Creation and Copyright Assignment
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

Often, I get requests to draft a simple agreement whereby the business owner who paid or is about to pay for some content created specifically for that business would own copyright in what they pay for.

Just today, I got a call from an existing client. They hired a videographer to create videos for their business. Now the videographer is claiming that my client does not own copyright in the videos. However surprising this may be to most people, the videographer is correct, at least from the legal standpoint.

Unless there is an assignment of copyright in writing, the copyright remains with the person who created the work, in this case, the videos.

Often, the client’s situation does not justify hiring a lawyer to create a completely customized agreement.

So I decided to share the template that I developed as a result of many years of writing these agreements in different jurisdictions.

If you hired someone to create content for you or you are about to hire someone to create content for you and you don’t have a budget to document the transfer of intellectual property from your contractor to you, you should definitely check out these templates. They may not ideally fit your situation and are not offered as legal advice, but in my experience, they should take care of 90% of the situations that usually arise around such facts.

This is where you can download standard Content Creation and Copyright Assignment templates at a fraction of what it would cost you to have a lawyer draft a customized contract. Check out the previews and see for yourself that the level of details covered in these templates greatly exceeds anything that you can download for free on the Internet.

Hoping that this will be of value to you.
