Sound Trademarks Now Registrable in Canada
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It Print

On March 28, 2012, the Canadian Trade-marks Office announced that it is now accepting applications for registration of sound marks. It also published the first advertisement of a Canadian sound mark application for MGM’s roaring lion sound mark.

The Practice Notice states the application for a sound mark should:

    1. state that the application is for the registration of a sound mark;

    2. contain a drawing that graphically represents the sound;

    3. contain a description of the sound; and

    4. contain an electronic recording of the sound.

New applications for sound marks cannot be submitted online, only by way of a paper application. The recordings of the sound marks cannot exceed a 5MB limit and should be submitted on a CD or a DVD.

The usual rules pertaining to functional, clearly descriptive and deceptively misdescriptive trademarks apply to sound marks, including the saving provision for trademarks that have acquired a secondary meaning.

Below is a table of 89 sound trademarks registered by USPTO . Even though sound trademarks are more common in the U.S., it is still difficult to understand how some of these recordings ever managed to be registered as trademarks.

The trademarks are the property of their respective owners. The data is provided by the USPTO. I converted the data into the table below to enhance the learning and listening experience.
