Intellectual property refers to works, products, inventions of the mind, literary and artistic works, logos, designs, emblems, names, sounds or processes that are unique.

In order to maintain an exclusive right to use all of his creations, it is crucial that his author protects them.

Intellectual property is generally protected by law, allowing their author / creator to derive recognition or a pecuniary benefit from their creation.

For example, in Canada and most other countries, you can have your intellectual property protected by applying for a patent, trademark, industrial design, or copyright registration, at the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO). However, thanks to Artizyou, it is also possible, for certain types of intellectual property rights, that automatic protection may result from the mere use provided that you can prove your property and/or previous use.

Even when intellectual property is protected by the sole effect of the Act, it will still be necessary to prove certain elements, for example, the prior use of a trademark or the evidence of prior creation of your trademark. artwork.

As the proof of the author's right to a work can often be difficult, the registration of your creation on the blockchain offered by ArtizYou is very useful to allow you to prove your rights in case of dispute.

ArtizYou also performs for you a digital watch of your creations to warn you in case of counterfeit. This is particularly useful for your trademarks, since failure to defend your trademark rights may result in its "dilution". The dilution of a trade-mark occurs when a mark is used by more than one person in the same market, so that it loses its distinctive character, which is necessary to grant protection to the owner.

The trade-mark may consist of a word, a design, a symbol or a combination of these elements, used to distinguish the products or services of a person or organization from those offered by a third party.

The rights to a trademark are acquired through its use. That is to say it is not necessary for a trade mark to be registered with a governmental body to confer on its holder a certain degree of protection. However, this protection requires proof of your previous use of trademark, hence the importance of registering it with ArtizYou as soon as possible.

This protection will be limited to the territory where your mark is actually used, and only for products and services sold under this trademark. We recommend that you register an invoice from your company for each territory that you serve.

A registration with the government offices of the territory where you do business may grant you additional protections. For example, in Canada, the government registration of your trademark includes, among others, 3 main advantages:

  • It provides brand exclusivity across Canada, regardless of your actual place of business.
  • After five (5) years, your registration gives you a presumption of validity of your trademark.
  • Your company can benefit from the benefits of preliminary research before filing its trademark to assess the likelihood of confusion with third parties in Canada before investing time and money. money in the deployment of the brand.

Filing an application for registration with the Trademark Office begins the registration process, which may take more than one year to complete. However, you enjoy the benefits of registration from the filing of your application, subject to your acceptance. In Canada, we recommend that you do business with an accredited trademark agent. Registration of your trademark may cost you between $ 1,000 CAD and $ 2,500 CAD, subject to the selected trademark agent. For more information, we invite you to visit the Canadian Intellectual Property Office website.

While waiting for legislation to evolve in the face of the Blockchain revolution, registering with the government offices in the territory where you do business may grant you additional protections. For example, in Canada, the government registration of your trademark includes, among others, 3 main advantages:

  • It provides brand exclusivity throughout Canada, regardless of your actual business location.
  • After five (5) years, your registration gives you a presumption of validity of your trademark.
  • Your business can benefit from the benefits of preliminary research before filing its trademark to assess the likelihood of brand confusion with that of a third party in Canada before investing time and significant amounts of money. money in the deployment of the brand.

Copyright means the exclusive right of a person to produce or reproduce all or a substantial part of a work in whatever form it may be. ArtizYou is especially helpful in protecting your copyrights on your works and creations.

Works include the texts you write, the images you create, the sculptures and other artistic attractions. These works also include all your digital creations, your source codes, your algorithms, etc. However, note that some works copied over 50 copies may not be protected by the Copyright Act.

No. There are several legal presumptions about the ownership of a creation. When your employee created a work at your request during working hours, there is a legal presumption that the employer is the true owner of the work. However, it is very important to know that when the author of the work is a subcontractor or a freelancer, the rights in the work are deemed to belong to him and it is essential that an assignment agreement be signed between parties to ensure that you hold the rights to the work. If you are not the author of the work or it was created in collaboration with several authors, contact ArtizYou so that we assist you in the process, this is a tailor-made service.

No. In the case of multi-author collaboration, there is a presumption that copyright belongs equally to employees, even if the work is designed and created 90% by one of the collaborators.

Industrial design refers to the aesthetic characteristics, the appearance of an object and more particularly the shape, configuration, pattern or decorative elements, or any combination of these features.

In contrast to trademarks and copyrights, but like patents, if an industrial design is not registered with CIPO's Industrial Design Office, it is not form of legal protection to prevent its imitation by third parties as well, we recommend that you do not try to protect your industrial designs via the Artizyou platform.

A patent applies to new technologies that are newly created and improvements made to any products or processes.

More particularly, the patent makes it possible to protect the technical aspects and / or specificities of a new invention. However, it is important to note that the patent does not protect the aesthetic characteristics of a new invention / process.

Note that Artizyou can not help you protect an invention, since only a patent application from organizations such as CIPO in Canada, for example, can grant you this protection. We recommend that you do not attempt to protect your patentable inventions via the Artizyou platform.
