Published on 04 April, 2019
In recent years, intellectual property has taken centre stage in much policy making worldwide. In line with this, the Hong Kong government is committed to making Hong Kong an innovation hub.
In 2019 a number of changes are expected in Hong Kong’s intellectual property system, including the coming into force of amendments to the Patents Ordinance allowing for own grant of patents and the establishment of an IP specialist list in the High Court. Fully up to date, this book covers all the main IP causes of action, the interplay of IP and competition law, domain name recovery and cross border enforcement of IP rights.
In this new environment Intellectual Property in Hong Kong will be a go-to tool for practitioners, academics, students and others interested in Hong Kong intellectual property law and issues.
