Law As a Shield
Intellectual property is an important value in the business sector. A business unit that has no intention to secure its intellectual property may not grow positively or even immediately perish due to the lack of legal protection.
Indonesia as a developing country is concerned with the legal protection of intellectual property term. This is proven by several renewal actions on regulations of intellectual property. The aim of the government is to provide legal certainty and protection to owners of intellectual property right. With this protection, the government hopes the growth of economy in Indonesia will increase dramatically.
The protection of intellectual property is also intended to provide legal certainty for investors. Each investor or business planning to invest in Indonesia will have their right guaranteed and protected within the current regulations of intellectual property, thus the certainty of business transactions will be highly promised.
Meanwhile, the national protection of intellectual property is also synchronized with the system contained in TRIPS. As we know, protection can be obtained by going through the registration process or known as the constitutive system. Without registration (except copyright), Intellectual Property is neither registered nor protected. The function of it is not only to protect the owner, but also the society, since the intellectual property can then be easily investigated and known. With this method, in the event of any dispute between right owners, the proof of the ownership will be shown by the registration certificate. This certificate is established by Direktorat DITJEN Kekayaan Intelektual which is managed under Kementerian Hukum dan HAM Republik Indonesia.
In order to make the registration process easier and more efficient, DITJEN KI trains and appoints Intellectual Property Consultants. The existence of such consultants in intellectual property aims to help society and the business sector to have closer and deeper knowledge on regulations of intellectual property. Moreover, consultants may also help the business unit to register its right to DITJEN KI. Since consultants have been well trained, registration mistakes as an impact of administration problem can easily be eliminated, therefore resulting in a more efficient registration process.
