The Indonesian Parliament recently approved important changes to the Indonesian Trade Mark Law and these amendments should take effect on 26 November 2016.
Key provisions include:
A significant procedural change will also be made to streamline and expedite the trade mark application process. Under the new law, if a trade mark application passes the initial formality examination, it will proceed to publication within 2 weeks of the filing date of the application. It is important to note that publication will now occur before the substantive examination stage. Third parties will have 2 months to oppose an application instead of the 3 months under the old system. It is hoped that this will speed up the registration process considerably. However, trade mark owners will have to monitor publications very carefully and be prepared to take quick action. A watch service is highly recommended.
