Competition Bureau publishes final version of its revised Intellectual Property Enforcement Guidelines

News release

March 13, 2019 – OTTAWA, ON – Competition Bureau

Today, the Competition Bureau published the final version of its revised Intellectual Property Enforcement Guidelines (IPEGs). The Bureau has carefully considered all comments and submissions it received after inviting feedback on the draft version of the revised IPEGs.

The IPEGs clarify the Bureau’s approach to conducting investigations of alleged anti-competitive activities that involve intellectual property. By publishing these guidelines, the Bureau makes it easier for those with a stake in intellectual property matters, such as the legal community and high-tech industries, to operate within the law.
