MAN WALKS PAST MASCOT AT HONG KONG TOYS AND GAMES FAIR.
A man walks past a teddy bear mascot for the Hong Kong Toys & Games Fair 2000, at the entrance of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre January 11. The fair kicked off on Monday and immediately attracted a string of complaints of infringements of intellectual property rights. Although Hong Kong is the world's largest toy exporter, selling up to HK$86 billion (US$11 billion) overseas in 1998, only 30 percent of what Hong Kong exports is designed locally.
