Geographical Indications Regulation in Indonesian National Law

Almusawir ., Badriyah Rifai, Ahmadi Miru, Winner Sitorus


Geographical indications are protected by law as a sign indicating the origin of a good, which due to geographic environmental factors including natural factors, human factors, or a combination of both factors, provide certain characteristics and quality of the goods produced. Similar to the legal protection of Trademarks in Indonesia, legal protection of Geographical Indications also requires the existence of a registration application process. It's just that Geographical Indication registration is done by interested parties specified in Brand Law and Geographical Indication. An application of Geographical Indication may be rejected by the Directorate General of Intellectual Property Rights of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia if it is contrary to religious morality, decency, public order, or may deceive or mislead the public about the nature, characteristics, quality, source of origin, process of manufacture, and/or usefulness. It may also be rejected if it does not qualify to be listed as a Geographical Indication, for example not having the characteristics and quality of a product produced.

Keywords: geographical indication, regulation, national law, Indonesia.
