The Development of Technology is in Your Hand
The existing of the intellectual property rights (IPR) constitution in our society is a common thing, because every moment we work, we relate continuously with “technological” aspect. Technology have a prominent role in developing and saving the intellectual rights. The shape and technology realization today developed very fast and causing the world getting smaller, getting faster and of course it supported by the Information Technology. With this condition, the existing of IPR becoming more important, especially in Pindad which is becoming one of well-known manufacture industry that related directly with IPR issue. So that, Pindad have to prepare, support and facilitate its employee so it can increase the innovation of employee that can be useful for the company. Beside that, we realize that intellectual needs a proper law protection so it will make a good and competitive environment which is needed in creating the national development.
Generally, Intellectual property rights can be divided in to two categories, there are: Creating Rights and Industrial Property rights. Industrial property rights includes brand, Industrial design, Layout design of integrated circuit, secret of trading and plants variety.
The Principles of Intellectual Properties are:
1. Economic Principle
Economic principle is the intellectual rights that came from the willingness from human brain for creative activity which is expressed in various ways that will give benefit to the related person.
2. Justice Principle
Justice principle is when we create a thing or people which work and give a result from intellectual ability in knowledge, art and literature which will get the protection from the owner.
3. Cultural Principle
Cultural principle is the development of knowledge, literature and art for the sakes of human living.
4. Social Principle
Social principle (ruling the human intention as a citizen), it means that individual rights that is legal by law and has been given in to each person is a unity so that the protection is given based on the balance of individual and society intention.
As the consequences of Indonesia’s membership in WTO (World Trade Organization), we need to adapt every constitution in Intellectual property rights with TRIP’s standard (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) which started since 1997 and has been renewed in 2000 and 2001. This is also the impact of the international conventions ratification in Intellectual property rights side and also suitable with the must follow rule called the constitution about creating rights, Industrial design, design of integrated circuit layout, patens and branding.
Problems about intellectual properties rights will touch various aspects like technological aspect, industrial, social, cultural and others. But the most important aspect related to the protection effort for intellectual product is the legal aspect. Legal has been expected to handle various problems that happened related to intellectual property rights. Legal have to give protection to intellectual product. So that, it can develop the ability of creation that will end up to a goal to make the protection of intellectual property rights succeed.
Related with the law protection of Intellectual property rights, in this opportunity we will deliver some experiences related to legal advocacy in handling IPR in General Director of intellectual property rights (Ditjen.HKI). This IPR problem is not really difficult because all procedures and work instructions in IPR making can be gotten easily from IPR General Director site, and also if there are some problems that we don’t understand, officers ready to help us. The most important thing is in that product, the inventor can deliver the details of product or the thing that have been created. Because of having IPR is getting easy, so every product and creation of PT Pindad suppose to be registered in General Director of Intellectual Property Rights (Ditjen. IPR), in order to get law protection.
With Information system of IPR which integrated and easily accessed by society, we hope that the number of people who wants to registered Intellectual Property Rights in Indonesia will increase. So that the integrated law enforcement ( including IPR), breaking the law in the shape of hijacking the intellectual property which protected by the constitution will be reduced. The synergy between the information system of intellectual property rights and integrated law enforcement will end up bringing Indonesia in to a civilized country that respecting other people’s creation.
