Staples has done a brilliant job of holding Office Depot out of the Canadian market, and one factor must be its skillful use of the BUSINESS DEPOT trademark which it acquired when it bought a beachhead in the Canadian market.

This is a great little story of two American titans battling it out in Canada, with one besting the other, and using Canadian trademark law very effectively as a weapon on its behalf.
