Intellectual property enforcement and awareness building in China, Thailand and Indonesia (administered UOW)

Funding: 2008: $9,907

Project Member(s): Stoianoff, N.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2005

Summary: As a country with a significant intellectual property industry, Australia has a strong interest in intellectual property protection and enforcement. Australia has also an interest in reducing the amount of infringing material that is brought into the country. Apart from border control mechanisms, an obvious way to achieve this is to strengthen enforcement in the originating countries of this material. The project will inform the Australian government with regards to policy making for this area and facilitate the planning of effective cooperation programs with Asian countries.
