You may not extract and/or re-utilize parts of the content of any of The Saffa Ltd without our written express consent.

The freedom to use someone else’s economic achievements that are not protected by exclusive rights (e.g. as a design, trademark) is subject to constraints set forth in national regulations governing unfair competition. It is often the only basis for granting legal protection to an interested party (when the party’s packaging has not been granted protection trade mark or design protection or does not qualify as a work under copyright law). Unfair competition regulations forbid unfair actions by/between manufacturers (entrepreneurs) competing in the market; such actions are deemed tort. In some cases, copying someone else’s products (packaging) constitutes an act of unfair competition when, for example: – it could be misleading as to the competitor’s offer, i.e. it may mislead customers as to the identity of the manufacturer or origin of the product, or – it has a parasitic character, that is utilities another’s ideas, reputation, or labor input without his authorization. In addition, it does not need to be an exact copy of the packaging. It is sufficient for packaging (originals and their copies) to have a certain degree of similarity that an average customer could not recognize which one is the original and which one is the copy.
These Terms and Conditions for purchase shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR). Any dispute(s) arising in connection with this Terms and Conditions for purchase are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of Hong Kong SAR.
