Did you know that registering your IP in Canada does not secure your rights in Japan?

In Canada, nearly half of businesses own at least one type of intellectual property (IP), and more than half of those businesses credit registering their IP rights with improving their success. Still, when businesses expand to other markets, IP protection tends to be postponed – sometimes until it is too late.

On June 29, join Gowling WLG for an exclusive webinar hosted by the Trade Commissioner Service and in collaboration with The Embassy of Canada to Japan and Shiga International Patent Office. Learn how to develop a winning global IP strategy that positions you for success in the Japanese market and safeguards your business interests.

Attendees will hear the Canadian law firm perspective from Gowling WLG partners Timothy Bailey and Sumiko Mori and receive advice on Japanese IP law from Tatsuhiko Abe, patent attorney, Shiga International Patent Office. The panel will answer questions from audience members following the presentation.

Other topics to be discussed during the webinar include: registering IP in Japan compared to other jurisdictions, IP enforcement in Japan and legal resources, and common challenges faced by Canadian SMEs going global.

If you are thinking of going global with your invention or design and Japan is on your list, this event is not to be missed!
