|A rare IP raid|
The IPO’s tiny IP investigation team is far too small to make an impact, the newspaper reports – which is also consistent with IP industry views. At present they have no facilities to store fake goods so have stopped making seizures altogether. And the 3 months time lag for complaints makes it the slowest IP raid system in the world!
With Indonesia still on the USTR’s Priority Watch List criminal IP violation remains a serious problem, a symptom of the wider failure of law enforcement in the country. Both of the presidential candidates aim to improve corruption and law enforcement, they said in the first presidential candidate debates. Perhaps new leadership may change the IP situation. Roll on October when the new government and president takes office.
