Overview of Intellectual Property Law in Taiwan

With offices in Taipei and San Francisco, Wang & Wang is well-positioned to counsel businesses with intellectual property interests, including copyrights, patents, and trademarks, in Taiwan.  Because intellectual property ("IP") law is territorial, businesses must establish ownership of IP assets in every country where they manufacture and/or sell goods.  Our attorneys have extensive experience filing, registering, and protecting IP rights on behalf of our clients with enterprises abroad.

Establishing ownership of IP assets in Taiwan requires a working knowledge of local laws.  While many industrialized nations are signatories of international conventions and treaties that aim to oversee the application of IP rights across national borders, Taiwan is not a member of many of these agreements.  For information regarding Taiwan's intellectual property regime, please click on the links below:
