SURABAYA — The work of intellectual property consultant Benny Muliawan successfully set a new record again after the Somethinc brand penetrated 123 member countries of the Madrid Protocol.
Somethinc is a local cosmetics brand owned by PT Royal Pesona Indonesia.
A total of 123 countries are legitimate members who declared participation in the Madrid Protocolsystem. Nangkring in 123 countries is a special achievement because it is the only brand from Indonesia.
Thus, Somethinc as an official Indonesian cosmetic product can already be consumed by the international community in 123 countries.
"This advanced record can penetrate all countries that are members of the Madrid Protocol. Pride of Indonesia that local brands are known to the international community. Somethinc has recently penetrated 123 countries," said Benny Muliawan intellectual property consultant from Surabaya, Friday (23/4/2021).
Benny said somethinc's success was recorded in 123 member countries of the Madrid Protocol in line with the theme of the 21st Intellectul Property World Day in 2021 from Indonesia, namely From Local to Global.
The common theme of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is IP and SMEs ( small andmedium-sized enterprise): Taking your ideas to market.
