It has come to our attention recently that some trade mark owners / agents have received promotional emails, materials or telephone calls referring to registration of "trade marks on the Internet" which in fact relate to registration of domain names and not trade marks. The companies in question may use names that appear to have relationship with the Trade Marks Registry and send out materials which resemble the official records of the Trade Marks Registry with details of the trade mark, the proprietor, etc.
These companies are neither related to nor connected with the Intellectual Property Department. They do not provide official trade mark registration services in Hong Kong. Your particular attention is drawn to the fact that the Intellectual Property Department does not provide registration services for "trade marks on the internet" and has not authorised any party to provide such services.
