Trademarks Act

Version of section 53.3 from 2002-12-31 to 2014-12-08:

Marginal note:Re-exportation of wares

 Where in any proceeding under section 53.1 or 53.2 the court finds

  • (a) that wares bearing a registered trade-mark have been imported into Canada in such manner that the distribution of the wares in Canada would be contrary to this Act, and

  • (b) that the registered trade-mark has, without the consent of the owner, been applied to those wares with the intent of counterfeiting or imitating the trade-mark, or of deceiving the public and inducing them to believe that the wares were made with the consent of the owner,

the court may not, other than in exceptional circumstances, make an order under that section requiring or permitting the wares to be exported in an unaltered state.
