In Brief - Winter 2008/2009


In This Issue

LAW NOTES provide an excellent summary of a variety of interesting topics, including managing corporate reputation, business initiatives for innovators and entrepreneurs, and a look at biologics as a new growth area. Efforts to combat mortgage fraud; planning and financing small business ventures; the crucial significance of notice requirements as they relate to renewal provisions; and the new humanitarian symbol are all canvassed in separate NOTES. The full-length articles cover a wide gamut from practical tips about foreign travel to trade recommendations about scaling back restrictions on Canada?s foreign ownership and a revolution in financial reporting. In addition, the ins and outs of the national ?do-not-call list? are fully canvassed, as is a new lawsuit that allows those trading in the secondary securities markets to hold directors, officers and ?others? responsible for misrepresentation. In ??Hands Off the Cookie Jar?,? employers may be heartened to learn that they may have another quiver in their arsenal to curb workplace theft and recover losses. Wiki pages, diacritics, spoofed websites and the need to better protect trade-marks all get clarified in ?The Internet Is Now Truly International.? Brief Life Bites may provide a smile, and we include your Letters and Comments and also a little bit about us.

Please see full brief for more information.
