Indonesian laws on intellectual property  rights (“IPR”) matters (i.e., copyrights, patents, trademarks, industrial designs, integrated circuits layout design, and trade secrets) generally provide the IPR owners or holders (licensee) to permit or authorize another party to use the IPR through a licensing agreement.

Until the issuance of Regulation 8 (as defined below) there is no procedure to register a licensing agreement and parties are usually only notify the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (“Directorate”) by attaching a copy of the licensing agreement. Regulation 8, which came into effect on 24 February 2016, now requires the licensing agreement to be registered at the Directorate.
