MetadataShow full item record
With a series of important administrative plans and instructions, such as such as the Outline Development Plan of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Guangdong Province Three-year Action Plan on The Development in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area(2018-2020), it has become a consensus to strengthen the protection of intellectual property rights in the Greater Bay area in order to promote legal business environment. Although the intellectual property cooperation of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao has a remarkable progress, it still faces some outstanding problems due to the imperfect cooperation platform and mechanism, the difference of system rules among the three regions, and the inconsistency of protection standards and levels among the nine cities in the Pearl River Delta. In this regard, this memorandum provides idea of establishing an Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area intellectual property protection center. In addition, this memorandum discusses the functions of the center, the rights granted, the legislative procedures for its establishment, and the obstacles it may confront. By adopting this proposal, the level of intellectual property rights protection in the Greater Bay Area will be greatly improved. At the same time, it is a good attempt to integrate the judicial and administrative systems of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.
