Accepting goods and services classed with the Nice Classification
I can't believe this has been going on since 2014. Anyway, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office posted this on its website on January 3, 2017.
Don't get too excited! This doesn't mean that those “non specific” Nice classifications will all be acceptable. But the Manager does tell you what is or isn't acceptable 😉
On another note, Canada is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. In recognition of this, Trade-Mark Registration Certificates now feature the 150 birthday logo instead of the three autumn maple leafs.
There are other, much more interesting, things going on too. Ottawa 2017
This might just be a good year to make that long postponed trip to Ottawa.
