Business and commercial law: Web piracy causes a sea of problems

The 21st century has taken society to new technological heights. Many things are done online today. Documents are signed and posted, pieces of writing are posted and newspaper articles can be accessed. It stands to reason, then, that some of this intellectual property in Canada and the world over suffers at the hands of online pirates. Any copyrighted material that is downloaded or used without consent is considered, under business and commercial law, to be pirated.

A trademark, in the business and commercial world in Canada, is part of the branding picture that gives a product or service credibility in the eyes of the public.

Mergers and acquisitions: Global coup for Canadian company

A Canadian company is an odd beater. When it comes to mergers and acquisitions in Canada, it pays to do some homework and Appnovation Technologies is proof of that. The global digital market is a competitive one, but the founder of Appnovation has 15 offices around the world with around 250 employees, but getting there wasn't easy, especially since the company's founder is only in his early 30s. 

Mergers and acquisitions: Cannabis company purchasing rivals

A senior executive at Aurora Cannabis in Canada did just that recently, indicating that the company needed to step up its mergers and acquisitions efforts since the firm hadn't acquired any companies in "several hours." Aurora wants to get on the cannabis bandwagon and has been buying up companies in the hopes of being one of the nation's big pot players when Canada makes the drug recreationally legal in next summer.
