Seoul seeking to enhance inter-Korean cooperation on intellectual property issues

Researchers being asked to examine "competitiveness and growth potential" of top DPRK brands

Two South Korean government-run organizations plan to examine ways to boost inter-Korean cooperation in intellectual property rights management through a series of research projects, documents seen by NK News this week showed.

The Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) is set to commission research to “suggest practical grounds and establish a cooperative system to initiate inter-Korean cooperation in the field of industrial property rights and promote it in a stable manner.”
