The Canadian Securities Administrators (“CSA”) have announced that they intend to publish a new proposal for changes to the regulation of take-over bids, replacing the two alternative proposals published for comment in March 2013. One of the previous proposals put forward by the entire CSA addressed shareholder rights plans specifically, while the Quebec Autorité des marchés financiers (“AMF”) had presented for consideration a less regulatory framework dealing with take-over defensive tactics generally. The new proposal would simply amend the take-over bid legislation by altering the rules of the take-over game to address long-standing concerns that the current regulatory regime favours hostile bidders and impedes target boards to exercise their fiduciary duties in defending against bids and pursuing superior alternatives.

The Canadian government recently introduced a Bill which contained the most significant changes to Canada's trademark laws in modern history. Due to the fact that the revisions were contained in an omnibus Budget Implementation Bill (Bill C-31, Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 1), they were introduced without consultation and passed despite serious concerns from intellectual property lawyers and businesses over their potential impact. The Bill received Royal Assent on June 19, 2014, and is now the law in Canada. The specific amendments to the Trademarks Act that will be discussed in this article are not yet in force, but are expected to be made effective in the fall of 2014, as soon as the necessary regulations are drafted. Once these regulations are in place, the landscape of Canadian trademark law will be changed dramatically. Read more
