IPR is divided into two, namely Copyright & Related Rights and Industrial Property Rights. Copyright can be in the form of written works, journals, songs, plays and computer software. Meanwhile, Industrial Property Rights are divided into five, including trade secrets, industrial designs, integrated circuit layout designs, trademarks and patents.

Dr. Pande Gde Sasmita Julyantoro, S.Si., M.Si explained that IPR is declarative or copyright does not require the submission of an application and the birth of exclusive rights since it was announced by the creator/holder/owner) and constitutive or industrial property rights (requires the applicant's submission and the birth of rights). exclusive from the date of receipt. A technology, if it has been published, the patent is lost. It is best to register a patent at the same time as publication. After publication, it takes 6 months to register a patent. A patent is territorial, so if it is not registered with the Director General of Intellectual Property Rights, it means that it has not patented, it can be checked

At the time of granting a patent, it is done by cross-checking with patent databases around the world. Furthermore, the speaker explained about the patent. The requirement for granting a patent is to be novel, inventive, and industrially applicable. In addition, a patent has a maintenance fee which, if not paid, will be subject to a fine/debt by the state. The grace period of the patent is 3 years and if in the fourth year it is not paid, then the applicant is considered dead and is billed by the state. Copyright protection period is lifetime + 50 years. Strategies for obtaining patents: producing an invention, knowing the invention, having patentability, writing the invention according to the format/standard of the patent document and carrying out patent procedures.
