Hi Paul,

how much time / money did it cost you to register your trademark? I've heard from various sources that the time can be from 1 mth to 6 mth, and money from $300 to $2000, so just wanted to check with the person who had first-hand experience.

Also, can you recommend a lawyer for this kind of stuff.

thank you

I haven't received the legal bill yet for the trademark work. Expect it to be close to the middle of the range you gave. Time was minimal, a couple emails to our trademark agent was all it took.

We're in Vancouver and our lawyers are Clark Wilson. I'm happy but this is my first time registering a trademark, so I don't have a frame of reference.

email paul at learndot.com if you have other questions. :)

Thank you...will do for sure.

So you are Canadians, nice to see the start-up land diversifying a bit. I was in Toronto 14 years ago, loved Canada. Good luck with re-branding! :-)
