Product description

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). This book provides section-by-section annotations covering significant judicial decisions, rules of court, definitions of words and phrases, discussions on practical aspects, contentious issues, and other authoritative materials. The legislation is printed as currently in force (taking into account all amendments and repeals) with cross-references to subsidiary legislation and to tables, fees and forms where necessary.

Since the last edition of this book, the Trade Marks Ordinance (Cap 559) has been amended by amongst others, the changes made to the annotations of Sections 3, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 36, 38, 41, 42, 44, 51, 52, 53, 55, 64, 66, 70, 82, 84, 98, Schedule 1 and the subsidiary legislation (Trade Mark Rules Cap 559A) of the Ordinance. These amendments are incorporated in this edition so that it will serve as the most up-to-date reference guide.
