Davis LLP intellectual property lawyer Chris Bennett was interviewed for a story in the November 9, 2012 issue of The Lawyers Weekly on trademark protection.
The article "Trademark Clearinghouse Coming" looks at the system put in place by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to deal with potential trademark infringement issues that may arise out of the expansion of generic top-level domains set to hit the Web in 2013. Bennett points out that sunrise periods could be a cause for concern for Canadian trademark holders in the verification process.
