Intellectual Property

Domain Names and Websites

We offer a broad range of services involving the clearance, registration, maintenance and protection of domain names and related trade marks, as well as copyright protection in the online arena. We have been involved in the preparation of licenses, usage and privacy agreements for websites and Internet-related technologies, website development agreements and other aspects of e-commerce.

We will enforce your rights against cyber-squatters and others who improperly register and use Internet domain names that are identical or confusingly similar to your company’s names or trademarks.  We have acted for several companies in the recovery of ".com", ".com.hk", ".hk", ".com.cn" and ".cn" domain names registered by cyber-squatters, including acting for the Shangri-La Hotel group in challenging the third party registration of the domain name www.shangrila.com and successfully secured the transfer of the domain name to them. 

We also acted for and successfully defended Lai Sun International Hotels Limited against Sun Microsystems in Hong Kong's first High Court case on domain names (the well-known esun.com case).

Are you finding your products and IP rights being ripped-off online on various shopping sites? We have devised proactive and cost-effective anti-counterfeiting strategies for successfully taking down offenders, and have successfully pursued repeat offenders through the courts.
