The Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce is glad to see what it calls a trademark error corrected.

Minden resident Michael Stinson successfully applied for the trademark to the name “Haliburton” in 2015 and it was approved in February.

Chamber President Richard Wannan brokered talks between Haliburton County officials and Stinson, which ended with Stinson assigning the trademark to the county.

Wannan says he is hopeful everyone can move on from this.

The Trade-marks Act states that geographical locations cannot be trademarked.

Wannan also adds he never heard of Stinson going to businesses expecting royalties for products sold with the name “Haliburton”.
