The “Outline of the 14th Five-Year Plan for the National Economic and Social Development and the Long-Range Objectives Through the Year 2035” (the 14th Five-Year Plan) was formally approved by the National People’s Congress on March 11, 2021. Chapter 61 of the document expresses support for developing Hong Kong into a regional intellectual property trading centre, reflecting the value the Central Government places on the protection and commercialisation of intellectual property in Hong Kong.

Developing Hong Kong into a regional intellectual property trading centre has been a major policy initiative of the Hong Kong SAR Government in recent years. Hong Kong has a sound legal system, as well as an abundance of professional talents and resources, enabling it to offer competitive services where intellectual property transactions are concerned. How can intellectual property stakeholders, including entrepreneurs, inventors, innovation and technology personnel, designers, and creative industry professionals, make the most of this opportunity and open up new possibilities?

This co-production with the Intellectual Property Department consists of 12 five-minute episodes, with each centred on a domestic or overseas enterprise that has already registered a patent or trademark and uses Hong Kong as its R&D and marketing base, as well as creative industries with vast copyright resources. The programme will provide insight into how these companies make use of Hong Kong’s unique resources and advantages, or its professional intellectual property services, to develop business opportunities in the Greater Bay Area and internationally.

The development of Hong Kong’s comic book industry began as early as the 1970s, giving rise to a host of characters and stories suitable for adaptation into cultural works in different media.

A company in Hong Kong with more than 40 years of experience in comic publishing has leveraged on the recent popularity of online TV shows and films in the mainland to generate more business opportunities in copyright trading with the help of local legal services. Copyright trading does not only enable traditional comics to become timeless, but also promotes the development of new IP.

When scientific research projects are concerned, patent application does not only protect the results, but also helps with technology transfer, enabling the projects to transform into commercial products. However, the copious processes and extensive legal knowledge involved in patent application have discouraged many academic teams from taking the first step, thus hindering the market development of their projects.

Known as the “Father of Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing”, Prof. Dennis Lo received the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, often dubbed the “Oscars of Science”, for his non-invasive prenatal diagnostic technique in 2021. He has also set up a lab dedicated to promoting molecular diagnostics which specialises in the research of gene sequencing technologies. At the same time, Prof. Lo is also the Chairman of the Patent Committee at CUHK. He often encourages other academic teams to apply for patents and provides them with the relevant support.

    Digital Assets (Copyright and Trademark)

    Intellectual property and the creative industries are closely related. It is only when a creator’s works and rights are protected that more ideal and sounder conditions for development will arise.

    In this episode, we will visit a Hong Kong-based “unicorn”, that is, a start-up company valued at over US$1 billion. This digital asset company uses its blockchain gaming platform to solicit collaborations with renowned brands from around the world. This does not only create synergy and increase the value of brands and trademarks, but also facilitates expansion into the metaverse, forging the future of the digital asset world.

    Group President Evan Auyang will elaborate on the close relationship between intellectual property and the company’s business operations, as well as how intellectual property protects the company’s creations during the game development process.

  • Garment Manufacturing Technique (Patent)

    Garment Manufacturing Technique (Patent)

    In the field of fashion design, copyright protection has always been subject to limitations. Take the classic miniskirt as an example. The earliest designers of this garment were unable to prevent others from making skirts with hemlines above the knees because simply shortening or lengthening the hemline by an inch made it difficult to substantiate plagiarism. However, a handful of designers have developed some new fashion technologies and combined them with their designs, enabling them to apply for patent protection through the technological aspect. The designer featured in this episode is filing a patent application for a new fashion technology. By examining the application process, we can better understand what we should pay attention to when registering a patent.

    Innovative DC Technology (Patent)

    To develop a smart city, the adoption of a safe, green, and efficient energy solution is essential.

    Under patent protection, an applied technology research institute in Hong Kong has successfully developed an innovative energy technology. Through licensing, the organisation has transferred
    and commoditised this technology, and even promoted it in the mainland market.

    CEO Dr Denis Yip will share how he and his team worked with a mainland research institute and electrical equipment supplier to commoditise their innovative, patent-protected DC technology for further application in different settings and sectors, so as to create bigger and broader business opportunities.

  • Garment Recycle System (Patent)

    Garment Recycle System (Patent)

    The research and development of a new technology or product always requires copious resources. To protect their products, developers usually apply for patent protection. However, many new technologies are developed from existing ones or re-innovations thereof. Therefore, when applying for a patent, the applicant must specify the innovative features and the scope of protection. Nevertheless, if the claim is too broad, approval might not be granted, while too narrow a scope might result in insufficient protection. Much of the system developed by this episode’s case study is based on existing fundamental technologies. However, they have integrated and modified them for application in garment recycling. Their successful application for patent protection ultimately enabled them to explore more overseas partnership opportunities with peace of mind.

    Art Toys (Trademark & Design)

    Be it in the field of product design, graphic design, or character design, every creation is the fruit of a designer’s labour. Designers hope that their works can grow and reach more places and people. But how can creativity be protected through IP rights during the process?

    Hong Kong toy designer Kenny Wong is opening up new markets with the little painter doll that he created. He spent over a decade learning how to provide sound legal protection for the name and unique looks of his doll through trademark and design registration. This little painter doll has become one of the most popular IPs in China in recent years, gaining a firm foothold in the RMB30 billion mainland designer toy market.
