All is quiet on the trademark front in Malaysia. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the physical operations of the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MyIPO) have been severely restricted. With the country briefly entering a national lockdown in June 2021, most of MyIPO’s services have moved to its online platform, IP Online. Now, with almost 80% of the population vaccinated, the government has been gradually reopening various economic sectors. As of September 2021, the number of trademark applications hovers close to those of last year, but nowhere near the 2019 numbers. Conversely, and somewhat surprisingly, the number of trademark registrations shot up in 2020, and 2021 looks to continue this trend.
