On Thursday, 16th March 2023, we at Am Badar & Am Badar conducted a Webinar about "Strategies and Tips to Preventing Trademark Disputes in Business." This program aims to educate entrepreneurs, especially MSMEs (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises), and public sectors. We prompt them to be more aware of any actions that can cause trademark disputes. This webinar is one of Am Badar & Am Badar's efforts in supporting the realization of the DGIP program, which is set for 2023 as the Trademark Thematic Year.
What is Trademark Thematic Year of 2023?
2023 as the thematic year of trademark, is one of DGIP's goals to strengthen the trademark regime as an intellectual property right that has an essential role in the national economy.
Quoting from DGIP's website, Zaeroji once said that a trademark is one of the most demanded intellectual property works by business actors. "Trademark is an intellectual property that is absolutely needed by businesses in running their business."
There are several revolutionary programs to improve the quality and competitiveness of human resources through the "Safari Minister of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia" and "The Indonesia IP Academy."
There is also a mental revolution and cultural development program called One Village One Brand (Collective Brand) to encourage the IP-based regional economy in every village or district by having one brand collectively owned by a community engaged in one particular field in MSMEs or the creative economy (Ekraf).
After the DGIP previously designated 2022 as a Copyright year, it has increased the number of copyright registrations through the POP HC (Automatic Approval of Copyright Recording) system. In 2023, DGIP also targeted the percentage of registration through the POP Merek (Automatic Trademark Service Approval) system will increase.
Benefits of the "POP Merek" System for Business
With the existence of the POP Merek system, business actors from within the country and abroad can make it easier to register and renew their trademarks.
Trademark registration must be carried out nationally and internationally to become stronger and widely known by consumers.
There are three sub-programs in this POP Merek system, including:
