The Central Jakarta decided on 4th August 2011 that PT BIG infringed Tjandra's trademark and ordered the defendant to pay Rp 10 million for each day of delay in implementing this decision. PT BIG appealed to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court decided that Tjandra is the rightful owner of the brand 'iStore' and the defendant had without right and without the consent of the plaintiff used the brand 'iStore'. The judges agreed that the mark is similar in principle to the plaintiff's trademark 'iStore', on January 31, 2012 (although the decision appeared in the media only recently).
IP Komodo is encouraged by the increasing number of IP infringement cases coming through the Jakarta courts. Although IP Komodo is not sure Apple would approve of the iStore website which pays tribute to the iMac desktop!
