Trademark registration in Indonesia helps protect the owner’s right and file legal action against unauthorised use of this trademark.
In general, a trademark is defined as anything that distinctly separates a person, a firm or legal entity. It is considered intellectual property (IP), and therefore the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DGIP) is the primary authority body approving trademark applications.
In Indonesia, piracy is common, and even well-known global brands are not spared from trademark infringement. Since it takes several months, usually more than one year, to get the trademark certificate, it is crucial to register your trademark as soon as possible especially in Indonesia where “first-come-first-served” basis is applied.
