Jeffrey Vicq quoted in Postmedia News article

Firm News

Clark Wilson partner Jeffrey Vicq was recently quoted in a Postmedia News piece, “Royal Canadian Legion tells Reddit to remove poppy symbol over trademark concerns.” The article examines the Royal Canadian Legion’s allegation that online forum Reddit violated the Legion’s legal rights by including the symbol as part of a webpage dedicated to discussions about Canada, and references the Legion’s other attempts to stop a variety of other organizations from making any use of the poppy. Jeffrey provided clarification about the legal basis for the Legion’s claims, observing that though the Legion’s efforts may be ruffling feathers, they also serve to highlight the importance of maintaining the poppy as a symbol of Remembrance Day.
