#ExportYourIP Twitter chat: Protecting your IP abroad

News release

Are you planning on doing business abroad? Join us for our #ExportYourIP Twitter chat with the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service on March 13, 2018 from noon to 1 p.m. (EDT). Your intellectual property (IP) is a valuable asset that can support your business expansion abroad. We will discuss the importance of protecting your IP internationally and the best practices when dealing with the United States (U.S.), China, India, and the European Union (EU).

Intellectual property experts will answer your questions and help you learn why it’s important to consider obtaining IP protection in the countries were you plan on doing business. Use the hashtag #ExportYourIP to participate.

Good news, we also have four new guides and a fact sheet that will help you navigate the differences when looking to register your IP in the U.S., China, India, and the EU.

Follow @CIPO_Canada and @TCS_SDC, and use the hashtag #ExportYourIP to participate and ask questions.
