|Intellectual property rights
|ICBC does not check whether anyone else already has
intellectual property rights or other rights to the slogan you
use. Such rights could include trademark or the right to use
a name in connection with a business. You are solely responsible
for make sure your slogan does not infringe anyone else's rights.
|You will have to pay a $100 fee when you apply for Personalized
Licence Plates. This fee covers the cost of processing your
application and manufacturing the licence plates for your use.
It gives the exclusive rights to the slogan on that vehicle
type. If the slogan you have requested is refused or not available,
the $100 fee will be refunded. Otherwise, the $100 fee is non-refundable.
Once your slogan has been approved and you have the plates,
you will have to pay an annual $40 fee to maintain the rights
to the slogan and the use of the Personalized Licence Plates.
This fee is in addition to and does not replace your annual
licence fee, which applies to all vehicles and which you are
still required to pay.
