A trademark indonesia registration is important to do if we already have a product or we have skills in a specific service section. In Indonesia, the arrangement regarding trademark protection is regulated in Law No. 20 of 2016 concerning Trademarks and Geographical Signs.
To register an Indonesian trademark, we recommend that we have the correct tutorial. In Article 20 and Article 21 of the Trademark Law it is explained regarding Marks that cannot be registered and rejected in Indonesia, namely as follows:
A trademark cannot be registered if:
a. Contrary to state ideology, statutory provisions, morality, religion, morality, or general order.
“Contrary to general order” is that it is not in line with existing provisions in a citizen whose character is complete, such as touching the hearts of citizens or groups, touching politeness or general norms of citizens, and touching the tranquility of citizens or groups. Indonesia trademark is very important.
b. It is the same as, related to, or only states the goods and / or services for which registration is requested.
The mark is related or only says the goods from / or the service for which registration is requested.
Example: we register coffee brands for kinds of coffee goods or register sweet brands for kinds of sugar goods.
c. Contains elements that may distort residents regarding the origin, quality, variety, size, type, direction of use of the goods and / or services being requested for registration or are the names of protected plant varieties for similar goods and / or services.
What is interpreted as “contains elements that can deviate”, for example the Mark “Ketchup No.1” cannot be registered because the residents deviate in relation to the quality of goods, the mark “net 100 g” cannot be registered because the residents deviate in relation to the size of the goods.

d. Contains information that does not match the quality, utility or benefit of the goods and / or services made.
What is meant by “contains information that does not match the quality, benefits, or benefits of the goods and / or services made” is providing information that does not match the quality, benefits, benefits, and / or risks of the defined product. For example: drugs that can treat a thousand and one diseases, cigarettes are safe for health.
e. Has no comparability.
A signal is considered to have no comparative power if it is so simple as a line signal or a dot signal, or so difficult that it is not bright.
