Fast action scheme now up to speed in Hong Kong


Benny Kong and David Tsai

The Fast Action Scheme (FAS) was set up by the Hong Kong Customs & Excise Department (HKCED) in 2006. Through FAS, copyright owners can take immediate action during exhibitions against copyright or trademark infringement.

In the past five years (since the Electronic Fair of October, 2006), the FAS has been successfully established. This is the result of a joint eff ort by the HKCED, various business associations, enterprises and individuals including Benny Kong (senior partner at Benny Kong & Yeung). The HKCED is efficient in its work and action so as to prosecute as many infringers as possible.

In the past few years, Benny Kong & Yeung has been actively involved in the FAS. We wish to convey to readers and/or copyright owners the necessary issues so they can co-operate more effectively with the HKCED.
