Since the protection of intellectual property rights(IPR) is only territorial, IPR proprietors are, therefore, not automatically protected in other countries or regions, and vice-versa, though they have obtained their registration in a certain country or territory.

Thus, according to IPR owners' market development needs, they should obtain registration and protection in each region or territory separately. It is in view of such needs, that IPAS launches to provide global IP registration of trademark, patent, design registration, copyright, IP licensing and IP search services in Hong Kong, China and an overseas.
