CIPO updates business plan
The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has just updated their business plan. One element of the plan includes a focus on international copyright. According to CIPO's plan, CIPO will become more active on the international stage. In September, for example, CIPO will head the Canadian delegation to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)'s meeting of the General Assembly, where the proposed development agenda for WIPO will be voted upon. CIPO's Commissioner of Patents, Registrar of Trade-marks and Chief Executive Officer, David Tobin, led the delegation last year. Mary Carman took over his position in April.
