Welcome to Parry Sound
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 11:35 AM EDT

A trademark squatter trademarked the phrase "Welcome to Parry Sound"
up here, and caused a fuss. We are trying to get Canadian Trademark law
changed, to prevent this sort of thing.

Changes to legislation
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, November 02 2012 @ 03:19 AM EDT
<p>I think the change needs to be that the defendant in any frivolous
lawsuit should not have to pay costs. As long as defending against a frivolous
lawsuit is expensive, companies with deep pockets will find
<em>something</em> to sue potential competitors with.</p>

<p>The lawsuit doesn't need any particular validity; when it is expensive
to defend against, it becomes a negotiating tactic. "Accede to our demands,
or we'll drain your bank reserves dry and leave the empty husk of your business
to collapse on its own. Or maybe we'll buy it for pocket change."</p>
