IPD holds "Creativity·Infinity" activity (with photo)
To establish closer ties between creativity and the community, the activity venue of "Creativity‧Infinity" was divided into several thematic zones, namely the product showcase zone, the interactive experience zone, the game experience zone, the fashion show zone, and the dance and music performance zone. The product showcase zone displayed products such as product designs, 3D printing figures and innovation and technology inventions, while the interactive and game experience zones displayed sign-translation gloves, underwater robots and interactive robots. An augmented reality game, a virtual reality game, a coding workshop and more were also set up to allow the general public to experience the unlimited creativity of young people. Two fashion shows were also held to demonstrate the work of local young fashion designers with elements of home-grown typefaces incorporated into the designs.
Speaking at the activity, the Director of Intellectual Property, Ms Ada Leung, said, "We hope that the general public can experience the joy brought by creativity and realise the importance of respect for and protection of IP rights through participating in the 'Creativity‧Infinity' activity."
The Chairman of the Social Services Committee of the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong, Mr Philip Poon, said, "On the theme of 'Creativity‧Infinity', the event allows young people to showcase their creative ideas, stimulate their imagination and creativity, and encourage them to create every possibility in their daily lives."
The IPD attaches great importance to the promotion and education work on enhancing the public's awareness of and respect for IP rights. Throughout the years, the IPD has been promoting the "No Fakes Pledge" Scheme, which encourages retail merchants to pledge not to sell counterfeit and pirated products, and encouraging the public to participate in the "I Pledge" Campaign to pledge not to buy or use pirated and counterfeit goods. In addition, the IPD disseminates the message of respecting and protecting IP rights to the public through producing Announcements in the Public Interest, collaborating with various organisations in conducting and supporting a wide range of promotion and education activities, organising interactive drama programmes and interactive tutorial websites for schools with the theme of respecting IP rights on the Internet, and organising visits to primary and secondary schools as well as seminars in tertiary institutions.
