Design law amendments in Indonesia

Image result for industrial designs
The next IP law due for reform in this round (the copyright law was amended in 2014, then patents and Trademarks in 2016) in Indonesia is the designs law. An IPR of increasing significance and one that is popular with domestic applicants in the region, designs are often overlooked as a means of protection. ASEAN’s AEC is keen on pushing through the Hague system in major markets in the region to reduce cost for applicants.  

The draft designs law (along with some other draft laws relating to business/industry) were due to be presented to Parliament and completed in 2017. However more work is needed and likely the law will be enacted in late 2018. One interesting change proposed is an unregistered design right. Also draft article 30 speaks of international filings - presumably intended to accommodate Indonesia joining the Hague Agreement in the future. Or rejoining, as technically Indonesia joined as a Dutch colony before independence, but that of course was not recognized as valid after independence.
