Top IP developments and predictions across Asia-Pacific


We look back at the top developments over the last 12 months in Intellectual Property (IP) and we look to the future by offering our top predictions for the coming year for businesses operating across the Asia-Pacific with an emphasis on mainland China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Over the last year, we have seen the continuous and rapid development of IP systems in APAC jurisdictions, including the establishment of the patent linkage system in China and the gazetting of the Hong Kong Copyright (Amendment) Ordinance 2022. Over the coming year, we expect further development in IP and more attention to be paid to IP compliance issues in emerging areas.

Our experts will be closely monitoring these developments and predictions during the course of the year, providing regular updates and analysis through free platforms such as our eAlert service, Law-Now, LinkedIn at ‘CMS Asia Pacific and CMS Intellectual Property’ and on WeChat at ‘CMS Asia’.

For now, we hope you find our reflections on 2022 and our predictions for 2023 both interesting and helpful as you continue to plan for the year ahead.
