Study Group on Industrial Design from Singapore Ministry of Law & IPOS visits JIPA
In the meeting, Mr. Nishio, JIPA Secretary General, introduced the organization and activity system and recent major activities of JIPA. The Singapore side asked many questions on the Japanese industrial design system involving substantive examination and how corporate users acted under such a design system. They also introduced their interpretation of the protection scope of design rights and copyrights under the Singapore laws in response to questions from the Japanese side. We experienced a meaningful exchange of views.
