Registering a design in other places


Application for registration of designs needs to be made to each country or jurisdiction separately. 

Each place will independently decide whether it will register a design in that place.

So, protection for a design registered in Hong Kong does not extend to the Mainland China, nor elsewhere in the world. Similarly, a design registered in the Mainland China, or elsewhere in the world does not cover Hong Kong.

You can apply for the registration of a design in each separate country or jurisdiction where you want to seek protection.
