An officer inspects exhibits at the opening yesterday of a museum set up by the Customs and Excise Department at Kowloon Bay to promote the protection of intellectual property rights. The museum showcases more than 300 counterfeit items seized by officers and shows how piracy has evolved over the years. Members of the public have to book to visit the 235-square-metre museum, which will serve as a training ground for investigators.
