2022 is a special year for Intellectual Property in Indonesia. This is evidenced by the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DGIP) in Indonesia getting various achievements and exceeding the set targets.
In 2022, the number of Intellectual Property applications in Indonesia is more than 257 thousand, which means this number has increased by 26% compared to 2021. The most applications in 2022 are for brands, namely more than 120 thousand applications, an increase of 16% from the previous year. This increase in the number of trademark applications in Indonesia means increasing public awareness about the importance of protecting Intellectual Property.
Furthermore, the second most intellectual property applications are applications for copyrights, namely 117,083 applications. This application increased by 34 thousand or 40% from the previous year. One of the reasons for the increase in Copyright applications is the launch of the Automatic Copyright Registration Approval (POP HC) in 2022.
Apart from applications for trademarks and copyrights, most applications are then held by patent applications, where patent applications in 2022 are 14,062, an increase of 12% from the previous year.
Public awareness about the importance of IP registration has not only increased but has also grown and developed. Due to this increase, Indonesia is in the top 10 for two types of applications, ranking 2 for trademark applications and 10 for simple patents among middle-income countries of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
