  • Trademark may consist of words (including personal names), signs, design pattern, letters, typefaces, numbers, graphic elements, colors, sounds, odors, the shape of the goods or their packaging, and any combination of the above elements.
  • A mark which can be expressed by writing or drawing can be registered as a trademark.

Once a trademark is registered, it has exclusive the using rights for the goods and services.

If other merchants use the trademark in Hong Kong for the same or similar goods or services without consent, it is an infringement and owner can take legal action in this regard.
