Efficient Ways of Tackling Trademark Infringements in Open Markets

September 29, 2016
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Trademark infringements occur more often than not as infringing goods can be easily distributed via both online and offline markets due to the rapid developments in information technology. In particular, it is common for trademark infringement activity to take place at a small volume but in a variety of different places on the internet at the same time.

Accordingly, with the change in market environments, conventional means for handling trademark infringement, for example, bringing an infringement suit before the court, no longer seem to be sufficient for protecting holders of trademark rights against such frequent cases of infringement. In this roundtable, we will discuss efficient ways to deal with such trademark infringements in open markets. In this context, we will also delve into the Special Judicial Police Force's (SJPF) activities and current outcomes related to tackling trademark infringements, with an aim to provide guidance on how to effectively use this special enforcement body for the benefit of trademark right holders.
