Dear eLawyer,

1. May I know, is it illegal to sell or buy REPLICA goods/ item in Malaysia?

a) REPLICA and immitation goods are two totally different terms.

b) Is it appropriate for buyer(s) to buy those sort of items, which is stated buy the seller to the buyer(s), that item their selling isn't ORIGINAL but rather REPLICA items.

Dear JS,

Our Copyright Act, Trade Mark Act and other related intellectual property statutes are aimed at person(s) who makes profit out of anotherís intellectual property. It is no crime to use a replica good or item although you may be sued by the Owner of the good in the tort of conversion.

If you are an avid movie fan in our local cinemas, you will notice that there are advertisements against buying pirated goods. Education is perhaps the best approach to combating piracy in the intellectual property world. The other means would be law enforcement (which includes civil suits) and pricing of products.

Q:
Dear eLawyer,

A bankruptcy summons was advertised on 4th Oct in the Star with a hearing date scheduled for 14th Feb 2008. This is related to an apartment purchase several years bank for which the bank as re-possessed the apartment and auctioned it off. I have not received or been receiving any correspondence from the bank and in fact I don't even know how much they are claiming for.

In your experience, what should be done about this situation ? What
steps can I take ? What kind of fees am I looking at to engage a lawyer to communicate on my behalf with the bank's lawyers and find a resolution other than bankruptcy.

Right now I am residing overseas. I assume that the worse case scenario is that I am declared a bankrupt. If this happens what are the possible implications and how long does bankruptcy last ?
