Victory: Non-indictment in an IP Dispute

The Taipei District Prosecutor’s Office, in an intellectual property dispute, ruled in our favor and decided not to indict our client. The Prosecutor’s Office pointed out that 1) there is no copyright in plaintiff’s works because simply amplifying an object is without originality; and 2) copyright cannot be originated from reproducing a world-renowned architecture; thus, the plaintiff cannot claim copyright infringement.

This case was undertaken by our founding partners, Dr. Ching-Yuan Yeh, and Cheng-Yuan Yu, Esq., senior associate Ms. Ya-Ling Cheng and attorney Ms. Hsin-Pu Yi. This is the 2nd time that we receive a non-indictment decision for our clients in the past two months.
