Indonesia trademark disputes

The latest trademark cancellation disputes in the Jakarta Commercial court include -

Johnson & Johnson sued PT Megasurya Mas to cancel its class 3 Avino mark alleging it was a bad faith copy of J&J's AVENO


Hager Electro SAS, a company from France, filed for cancellation against of the trade mark HI GER registered by local businessman, Hanlu on the basis that it is a bad faith copy of the 'well known' HIGER mark.

IP Komodo is often amused at these claims;  many are presumably applications made in bad faith but are these really well known trademarks justifying extra protection?
