AmCham Indonesia held an insightful virtual 2021 kick-off meeting for its Intellectual Property Rights Committee on Feb 17. Led by committee chair Nies Purwati, the meeting discussed Patent Law changes in the Omnibus Job Creation Law, the academic draft of the Patent Law revision, Presidential Regulation 77/2020 on Patent Use by Government, and priority issues for 2021.
Members said they were open to the patent regulation changes in the Omnibus Job Creation Law, as they have answered several concerns lingering since the enactment of the Patent Law, including local manufacturing requirements, compulsory licenses, and simple patents. Members are also looking forward to the Patent Law revision after the academic draft was published recently.
Moving on to 2021, the committee will focus on advocating better enforcement of IPR laws, specifically those relating to trademarks, copyright, and IP enforcement issues. AmCham will assist members so their concerns can be catered to in the upcoming regulation revisions. AmCham provides platforms for companies to share their aspirations and continue fostering close engagements with relevant stakeholders.
