Sometimes when you're a start-up business or entrepreneur, life can be a little overwhelming. It's a delight to see that the Canadian Intellectual Property Office is ensuring that this doesn't happen to small and medium business enterprises!
Over the next few weeks, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office will be hosting a series of roundtable discussions throughout Canada with small and medium enterprises to ascertain what their experience is with Canada's intellectual property system. It will be interesting to hear what the barriers and challenges face small and medium business enterprises in protecting and enforcing their intellectual property in Canada. What works? What needs a little mani-pedi-botox? It will also be interesting to see if any changes are made to Canada's intellectual property system, to better assist the small and medium business enterprises.
