Intellectual Property Case Updates – Malaysia

This issue of Intellectual Property Case Updates provides case notes on two recent Malaysian intellectual property cases.

In Low Chi Yong (trading as Reynox Fertichem Industries) v Low Chi Hong Anor, the Federal Court found the former licensees of a trade mark liable for trade mark infringement after the trade mark owner had withdrawn its consent to use the trade mark.

In another case, Kerajaan Malaysia & Ors v Then See Nyuk & Anor, the Court of Appeal overturned an award for damages in connection with the execution of a search and seizure warrant under Copyright Act 1987.
