The case shows how local parties often bring infringement cases more readily than foreign companies. It also shows there are courts outside Jakarta able to hear and deal with IP cases.
Perhaps the most important element was the damages claim. The claim for IDR10.5 Billion (USD750,000) was rejected outright. The lower court ordered a far lesser sum of IDR75 million (USD6,000), however the Supreme court threw even this out. Damages claims remain tricky. Whilst crazy sums as here are commonly claimed, low awards are usually made by courts. Real evidence of losses must be provided to win any money.
