What are the regulations/ prices for copyright?

Asked by Lovefirst (61 points ) June 18th, 2014 from iPhone

Good afternoon all,

I’m looking to start a project very soon in Canada/Montreal and I wanted to get a copyright on the name for the project. Do any of you know how copyright works? What are the prices, where could i get information or get it done, etc?

Thank you in advance :)

Thank you for taking the time to answer!! @gailcalled i just review the document and I’m not sure anymore if it’s what I meed to do. I want to start my own brand, i wanted to make sure no one could steal the name or anything but copyright seems to only be for work like art, paintings, a book that you wrote and stuff like that :/

Try googling “Patents in Canada.”

What is the nature of your “project”? Is it a work of art, or are you trying to create a business name?

You’re interested in a trademark.

Trademarks are handled by the same office in Canada it looks like.

From their site

A trade-mark is a word (or words), a design, or a combination of these, used to identify the goods or services of one person or organization.

Thank you @gailcalled

We want to start selling our own clothes, so we have a name for the clothes we are selling.
I know it’s going to start slow but eventually it can be big and we want to cover ourselves @dappled_leaves

@funkdaddy Interesting, I will definitely look into it! Thank you :D
