Patents and Trademarks
Buteyko Center USA has made claims
of exclusive patent and trademark rights.
With regards to the patent, there
are NO patents relevant in Canada or the USA.
This is a direct excerpt from a letter from the Buteyko Center USA lawyer:
"With regards to the issue of patent infringement, you are quite correct
in that there are no enforceable rights in the United States for the Buteyko
Method. The patent rights exist in the Russian Federation, as described on
Buteyko Center USA's website and literature."
With regards to the trademark
rights,the trademark granted in the USA through the EU was successfully challenged and cancelled in January, 2016.
