According to Razilu, in order to continue increasing the number of applications for and protection of domestic IP, DGIP is implementing digital-based innovations that are simple, inexpensive, and transparent. The DGIP launched the Automatic Copyright Registration Approval system (POP HC) and the Automatic Approval of Trademark Applications in 2022 (POP Trademark). In addition, POP HC aims to complete copyright registration applications in less than 10 minutes, which can be accessed via the copyright.dgip.go.id page. On the other hand, POP Trademark applies to three automatic Trademark post-approval services, namely Trademark protection extension, license recording, and official excerpts, by speeding up the process to less than 10 minutes. POP Trademark can be found at merek.dgip.go.id.
International registrants can also feel the benefits of using POP HC and POP Trademark. Still, international registrants must register their Trademarks and copyrights through an Intellectual Property consultant from Indonesia.
