- 2016-03-01 00:00:00

Despite the fact that the Indonesian government has included matters regarding Intellectual Property Rights in their legislation, specific regulation containing Intellectual Property Rights is not yet available. On the grounds of this and an increasing demand from Intellectual Property owners, the Minister of Law and Human Rights of Republic of Indonesia has finally released the issuance of Minister of Law and Human Rights’ regulation No. 8 of 2016 concerning requirements and procedures of request for recording of license agreement which was officially effective as of February 24, 2016. Obviously, this is a regulation to which owners of intellectual property have been looking forward as the regulation gives protection for both owners and holders of intellectual property’s objects.

The requirements for recording of license agreement are license agreement, excerpt of Intellectual Property Rights certificate, and receipt of payment of request for recording of license agreement fees. The documents will go on to examination stage to see whether the formality documents are complete at the latest 10 days upon receipt of request.

If the examiner finds any lack of formality documents, then applicants have 10 days computed from the date of issuance of formality objection to complete the aforesaid documents. Otherwise, the request will be deemed withdrawn.

Meanwhile, if all formality documents are complete, the minister will record license agreement and publish it on the official website of DGIPO accordingly. Furthermore, article 10 of this regulation stipulates that recording of license agreement is valid for 5 years and may be extended by paying a fee pursuant to statutory provision.

According to Government Regulation of Republic of Indonesia No. 45 of 2014 pertaining types and tariffs of non-tax state revenue type applicable to the Minister of Law and Human Rights, official fees for copyright, industrial design, patent, and trademark respectively are as follows:
