Bill aims to curtail trade in counterfeit goods

The federal government has introduced a Bill to make it more difficult to export, import and sell counterfeit goods, and to expand on what may be registered as a trademark and simplify the registration process. The proposed Combating Counterfeit Products Act (Bill C-56) would amend the Copyright Act, the Trade-marks Act, the Criminal Code of Canada and other Acts.
