:::Three Steps to Determine Infringement

Dear friends,
Welcome to the Infringement Report Webpage of National Palace Museum. You may report any suspicious infringing products or cases to the National Palace Museum (hereinafter referred to as the “Museum”) through this webpage.
To report any suspicious infringing products or cases, please refer to the “three steps to determine infringement” as explained below and leave your name, email address and related information. We will manage your report as soon as we receive it and contact you via email Law@hwgroup.com.tw. We sincerely appreciate your collaboration with us to maintain the rights of cultural relics and related intellectual properties for the Museum.


Three steps to determine infringement

(1)Does the product label its origin from the Museum?
(2)The product claims to be authorized by the Museum but without the Museum's trademark or laser label in full title.
(3)The product is relatively poor in quality or more vivid in color and so on.

※Examples on how to determine infringement:
1. There are such words as "Taipei National Palace," "Palace Collection," "Only One Original," "Limited Copies" but without the mark "National Palace Museum" or the trademark of the Museum in full title.

2. The products are labeled "professional imitation of painting and calligraphy," or claimed to be "ancient traditional Chinese painting" but have deeper and brighter background color, or have many seals or look like ancient painting.
3. Other cultural creative products like tapes or rubber tapes are roughly made or have bad printing quality.
