Canadian Innovation Series: The Intellectual Property of Roots Canada

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 - 12:30 to 14:00


The Centre for Innovation Law and Policy hosts periodic lunch talks about the intellectual property issues faced by iconic Canadian companies.  On October 16, Shane Hardy, a partner in Cassels Brock, will discuss the protection of ROOTS, one of Canada’s most famous trade-marks.

Mr. Hardy’s extensive trade-mark practice has seen him act as counsel to a wide range of Canadian and international intellectual property (IP) rights holders and has allowed him to assist in the protection and enforcement of some of the world’s most famous trade-marks. Shane’s IP practice has also involved the protection and enforcement of copyrights, patents and trade secrets. He is frequently retained to assist with both prosecution and enforcement issues.   Shane graduated from Dalhousie Law School in 2000 and was called to the Bar in Ontario in 2002.

Space is limited; faculty and students only.  Registration is required.  A light lunch will be served.
