Event Details:

This book systematically studies the structural characteristics of IP laws and regimes of major Asian economies, including (but not always) China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. It explores and crystallizes some worthy Asian models which could further help the development of international IP laws. This book begins with an overview of Asian modern history and IP laws. It discusses the three basic IP laws in Asia, namely patent law, trademark law and copyright law.

Following Professor Kung-Chung Liu’s introduction to his recent book in this seminar, a panel consisting of Professors Christopher HEATH (Maastricht University and EPO), Yinliang LIU (Peking University Law School), Wee Loon NG-LOY (National University of Singapore Faculty of Law), Yoshiyuki TAMURA (University of Tokyo Faculty of Law), and Angelia Jia WANG (Durham Law School) will discuss key issues in the book.
