Packaging and Labelling: Intervention on IP Rights?
12:00-1:45pm. Since the establishment of the Intellectual Property Department in 1990, the Hong Kong Government has taken concrete steps towards establishing itself as a regional IP trading hub. Intellectual property rights, including patents, copyright, designs and trademarks, have become fundamental to Hong Kong's economic policies, and its growth as an Asian powerhouse.
However, recent global and regional trends have seen a rise in packaging and labelling legislation which have the potential to infringe basic IP rights. This event seeks to take a closer look into the how, what and why some governments have chosen to enact extreme regulations, how industries have responded, and whether similar regulations might arise in Hong Kong.
