Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI) of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (Kemenkumham) set the patent year as a priority program in 2021.
In the series of programs, as conveyed by DJKI that one part of this intellectual property gets the largest portion by the government.
The government runs its program to introduce deeper derivatives of such intellectual property to the public, especially research institutes, universities, and businesses.
Such programs are dissemination, assistance in the preparation of specifications, and mediation related to the application.
About the government’s efforts in improving patent applications to DJKI.
Not without reason, the government states patent applications should be upgraded in other words still low.
Currently, the number of applications from within the country is not more than 10% of the total application.
The average number of applications is between 1,300 and 1,800 applications.
In giving the program priority, it was done by the government in 2018.
At the time, the government focused on the year of Geographical Indications.
A geographical indication is an object that is the peculiarity of one area is not owned by other regions such as Gayo coffee, Toraja coffee and rice Puncak Kapuas Hulu, or pepper Muntok Bangka Belitung.
One of the government’s breakthroughs with the special program is targeting each regional office of DJKI that operates throughout the province of Indonesia proposes at least one geographical indication product.
I’ve reviewed the term in previous articles. As well as the legislation complete with defining.
This time, I tell the reader again about his understanding. Findings on the inventor’s exclusive right to his or her findings are individual or group.
The findings relate to technology. It didn’t come to the discovery alone. The inventor must register the findings and obtain approval.
Registration of findings to government authorities in order to protect their inventors from piracy.
The patent has two categories, namely patents and simple patents.
Patents are the handle of an innovative idea and are implemented in the business world.
As for the simple development of patents. If it stops at an inventive step there are findings of ideas and can be applied.
So the simple discovery goes a long way from the findings of the idea, then developed into a physical item in it has a function.
Examples of findings: a machine, a technology, a compound, and a formula.
