Hong Kong: Difficulties in Rights Protection


Industry insiders said it was a challenge to manage growing IP risks amid fierce competition, with the protection and development of IP gaining importance in China. The comments were made at a seminar co-organized by China Daily roundtable summit and the Business of IP Asia Forum last week. Yao Yingjia, chief designer of Lenovo Group, said it became harder to protect a single IP, and those that "own a basket of related patents" enjoy much more strength.

It was this “Whampoa Military Academy” for IP that educated China’s first batch of corporate IP management personnel. Many of these engineers left Foxconn in the years since.
