New Administrative Policy with Respect to Licences

Publication Date: 1996-04-24

The Trademarks Office will now record license agreements and documents terminating license agreements. Paragraph 26(2)(c) of the Trade-marks Act provides that the register shall show, with reference to each registered trademark, a summary of all documents deposited with the application or subsequently thereto and affecting the rights to the trademark. License agreements and documents terminating license agreements will be placed on the trademark file and the registers will be noted accordingly, upon receipt of the fee as provided for in Item 8 of the Tariff of Fees in Schedule 1 per mark.

Note: The Trademarks Office takes no position with respect to the effect of the recordal of license agreements and documents terminating license agreements.
