Five Important Things For Canadians to Know About U.S. Trademarks

1.  Your Canadian trademark registration does not protect you in the U.S.
2.  Canadian and U.S. law and registration procedures are roughly the same.
3.  A Canadian cannot file directly for a trademark in the U.S. You must use a U.S. Attorney or an authorized Canadian trademark agent.
4. You can obtain a U.S. trademark based on your Canadian registration.
5.  If you apply for a U.S. trademark within six months of your Canadian application, your U.S. trademark will be predated.
