DGIPR launches new IP database


The Directorate General of Intellectual Property Rights (DGIPR) has launched its new integrated Intellectual Property Data and Information Service System (LADI HKI), which includes patent, trademark and industrial design data, at ‘e-statushki.dgip.go.id’. The World Intellectual Property Organisation has been working for several years to help automate DGIPR, one of the last offices of the major South-Eastern Asian countries to be running manual systems.

This system replaces the old DGIPR online database. Users can filter and sort search results for:

  • patent and utility models - the database includes rejected, granted, cancelled, pending and lapsed patents;

  • trademarks, collective marks and service marks - the database includes registered, renewed, pending, expired, cancelled, deleted, withdrawn and rejected marks; and

  • industrial designs, including registered, pending, expired, cancelled, withdrawn and rejected industrial designs.

The language is Bahasa, which will not assist overseas IP holders. There are still some question marks over the data quality given that, until now, manual systems have substantially been used by the DGIPR. Therefore, it may take a while before old manual derived omissions are remedied.
