ACCT7900 Intellectual Property and Data Protection Compliance (3 units)
In the digital era the need for businesses to innovate along with the internet of things meant that intellectual property and the protection of data regulatory obligations is core to managing business risks. This course aims to enable students to obtain a firm foundation in intellectual property laws including trademark law, copyright, patents, design rights and confidentiality, as well as data protection laws by tackling matters relating to privacy of individuals and rights of access to data.
These regulatory obligations also give rise to the risks of penalties imposed by regulators that necessitate corporations to establish an effective compliance system. Further, since it is critical for students to be able to analyse critically the solutions at local and international levels, the jurisdictions covered will include Hong Kong, European Union, United Kingdom and Australia.
