Mark Robbins coauthored the article "An Amicus Call to Action in Canada—And a Novel Approach to Intervention", published by the International Trademark Association (INTA), with Noelle Engle-Hardy, Smart & Biggar, and Nancy A. Miller, Miller IP Law.
"INTA is calling on its members to suggest cases around the world for submission of amicus curiae briefs, continuing an established trend of submitting a record number of briefs worldwide in 2020. In Canada, an innovative approach may change the intervention process.
INTA regularly participates in trademark proceedings around the world as an amicus curia—or “friend of the court.” Through such participation, the Association can advance advocacy objectives and help to ensure the coherent evolution of trademark law. Last year, INTA filed 10 briefs globally, including four in the European Union, five in the United States, and one in India. In 2021, so far, the Association has filed three briefs, all in the EU."
