Indonesia has a “first-to-file” trademark system, in which protection over a mark is granted to the first trademark owner who submits a trademark application and subsequently obtain its registration. However, certain trademarks published in Indonesia may be similar or identical to the previously registered trademarks and/or used either in Indonesia or in other jurisdictions. Trademark holder should therefore simultaneously monitor the trademarks published in Indonesia and be prepared to file oppositions against the similar or identical trademarks.
The opposition period in Indonesia constitutes 2 months from the publication of a trademark application. If the opposition filed within this period, the Trademark Office must take this into consideration when carrying out substantive examination.
