The Copyright Ordinance (Cap 528), Trade Marks Ordinance (Cap 559) and Patents Ordinance (Cap 514) are presented as currently in force, together with details of amendments and repeals and subsidiary legislation, fully augmented by detailed, section-by-section commentaries describing the interpretation and application of the law by reference to domestic and international cases and other authorities. This set is designed to provide expert guidance to any IP professional, whether engaged in contentious or non-contentious copyright matters, the preparation or protection of trade marks, or patent registration. Prepared by experienced authors and editors, this set is the first stop for anyone required to understand and apply Hong Kong's IP laws.

Butterworths Hong Kong Copyright Handbook (Third Edition) is a detailed work of reference containing up-to-date materials on the Copyright Ordinance (Cap 528), the most important legislation pertaining to copyright law in Hong Kong. This Handbook reproduces the text of the Copyright Ordinance (Cap 528) as is currently in force, together with details on all amendments and repeals. This Handbook also provides section-by-section annotations to the Ordinance. These annotations encompass significant judicial decisions and rules of court, as well as notes ranging from definitions of words and phrases to discussion on practical aspects and contentious issues relating to particular sections and other authoritative materials in a succinct format. Furthermore, the annotations are fully crossreferenced, and the Handbook comes with comprehensive tables of cases and legislation referred to. Since the last edition of this book, the Copyright Ordinance (Cap 528) has been amended by amongst others, the changes made to the annotations of Sections 22, 25, 31, 32, 35, 35B, 36, 38, 40A-40F, 41A,43, 45, 46, 54A, 54B, 54, 70, 72, 81A, 83, 84, 91, 95, 96, 109, 118, 119, 119B, 120, 120A, 121, 131, 132, 133, 154, 161, 171, 172, 187,189, 198, 199, 200, 207, 207A, 211, 213A, 215, 228, 229, 229A, 233, 238, 239, 242A, 244, 246A, 246B, 247, 258A, 272A-272O, 273, 273A-273H, 274, 282, 283, Schedule 1, Schedule 1AA, Schedule 1AB, Schedule 1A, Schedule 2 and Schedule 7 of the Ordinance. These amendments are incorporated in this edition so that it will serve as the most up-to-date reference guide. This series has been cited, with authority, in over one hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal. This Handbook will be an invaluable source of reference for practitioners, in-house lawyers, executives in media and publishing companies, executives in music and broadcasting companies, academics, students and those who are engaged or interested in Hong Kong copyright law.

Butterworths Hong Kong Trade Marks Handbook (Second Edition) is the twenty-first title in the Butterworths Hong Kong Handbook Series. This Handbook will be an indispensable companion for IP lawyers, marketers, company directors, IP professionals and in-house counsels, PR companies, company secretaries, students and all those who are engaged or interested in the design, preparation, registration and enforcement of trade marks in Hong Kong. As peculiar to the law of trade marks, commercial acumen meets creative endeavour in the most wonderful of ways. However, the high commercial value of branding so often leads to a fracas over the ownership of this creativity, and often involves minute arguments about "distinctiveness". Accordingly, this Handbook aims to make available in a convenient and up-to-date form the consolidated text of the Trade Marks Ordinance (Cap 559).
