Cultural products should be patented to prevent piracy: scholar
Taipei, Nov. 8 (CNA) Taiwanese cultural and creative products should be patented as a defense against piracy, a local scholar said in Yunlin, southern Taiwan Thursday.
Manufacturers should apply for patents for their creations in Taiwan or in the countries that sell the products to guard against improper selling practices, said Su Nan, a professor at National Yunlin University of Science and Technology.
The professor made his remarks at a seminar on intellectual property protection and the latest issues relating to technology law, which was also attended by Yu Xiang, head of the Chinese-German Institute for Intellectual Property under Huazhong University of Science and Technology in China.
Yu gave a speech on Taiwan and China's different patent laws and marketing strategies at the opening of the three-day seminar at the Yunlin university.
