Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
May I go ahead?
Yes. You can get the corporation to stop using your name or a name similar to yours. It is unlawful for one entity to use a similar name or the same name as another. This is called passing off. It is where the public can be confused by the use of the name so that the public may think they are purchasing from you when they are actually purchasing from another company.
So Your next step would be to retain a lawyer and have that lawyer send the company a cease and assist letter threatening a lawsuit.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
But they are very, very similar and the public can be confused by those names.
Not as far as I can see.
