The Software License Agreement (SAAS)

The Software License Agreement (SAAS): is a contract whose purpose is to grant certain rights to use your software to a person who will then become a licensee. It can be, among other things, a word processor, a spreadsheet or a database management system. The purpose of this contract is first and foremost to protect your software by governing its use by the licensee, the level of confidentiality of the information concerning the parties and the collection of personal information. Moreover, it allows you to clearly stipulate to the holder the terms of payment of the license, in the form of a one-time payment or a subscription

Copyright registration

In Canada, a work is protected by copyright as long as it is original and fixed on a medium. The expression of ideas is protected, but ideas as such are not. This right grants the author an exclusive right to produce or reproduce all or significant parts of his work. In other words, no one may copy another’s work without the author’s permission. In Canada, copyright is protected automatically.

Copyright registration is strongly recommended to protect your creations and has several advantages. Following the steps, you will obtain a certificate of registration. This certificate will allow you to prove that the copyright on the work exists in your favor and that you are indeed the owner of the work, in the event of a dispute, for example.

What's included

Preparation of your file;
Government fees;
Filing your copyright application with the Copyright Office;
Correspondence with the Copyright Office on the follow-up of your application;
Obtaining a certificate of registration.

What's not included

* The Copyright Office does not monitor, control, use or protect your work. Therefore, your ownership or the originality of your work will never be questioned. Also, it is not necessary to send your work to the Copyright Office. The Copyright Office does not examine the quality of the work.

*When copyright is registered, it is not mandatory to mark your work with the copyright symbol ( © ). However, it can be useful as a reminder of your copyright in the work. Even if your copyright is not registered, you may use this symbol followed by the name of the copyright owner and the year your work was first published.

I wish to search for the availability of my trademark

Trademark availability search

Starting at $415

Trademark Availability Search

Before you can file a trademark application, you must conduct an availability search for the name and/or logo you wish to use. If the agent’s search report is positive, you will then be able to obtain our trademark registration filing kit.

This search must be performed by a trademark agent, who is qualified to determine whether or not it is possible to file an application for registration and to advise you in this regard. The report will determine, among other things, whether the name you wish to use is available, whether it is not confusing with other trade-marks and whether it is registrable in the desired territory.

What's included

A preliminary search for a word and/or logo in one (1) class by a trademark agent

An availability search report for a word and/or logo in one (1) class, as well as an assessment of the risks of applying to register that name or logo as a trade-mark

Trademark Registration

Registration of a trademark

Registration of a trademark with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO), the United States Patents and Trademarks Office (USPTO) or the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) gives you an exclusive right to use the trademark for a period of 10 years, renewable indefinitely. This exclusive right is granted to you on the Canadian territory and for your sector of activity only. Your sector of activity corresponds, among other things, to the classes you selected during the availability search.

An exclusive right allows you to prevent your competitors from using your mark, a similar mark or a mark that may be confusing with yours. In the same way, you must ensure that you do not infringe on the trademarks of others.

What's included

– Preparation of your trademark application to CIPO, USPTO or EUIPO
– All government fees for the application
– Filing your trademark in one (1) class (if necessary, review the list of class titles)
– Correspondence with CIPO, USPTO or EUIPO to follow up on your trademark application
– Obtaining the certificate of registration of the trade-mark (subject to approval by the examiner)

What's not included

– The preparation of an argument in response to an objection to the registration of your trademark or the refusal of the registration of your trademark by an examiner. In such a situation, an additional fee of $400 will be charged.
