|Total IP cases||74||97||84||84|
The number of appeals is rising, last year 47 cases were appealed to the Supreme Court - around half of all the IP decisions. A second appeal is possible but much harder; in 2015 only 14 went to second appeal.
The Central Jakarta District Court recently moved from an older building into nice new premises (see picture). Users say it is much more modern. All the district courts are putting in place an online database of pending cases, so you can see the case details, hearing times, even find documents. Still there is no sign that judgments will be published sadly (probably the single biggest weakness in the IP litigation system). The Central Jakarta Court's IT system seems to be less well updated than South Jakarta District Court's, but there is some progress. And everyone agrees that the new building's air conditioning is a joy compared to the old building - waiting for the judge is no longer a hot problem!
