Jakarta (ANTARA) - The number of online requests for patent rights have continued to increase, according to the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI) of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.

According to DJKI data, in 2019, the number of manual requests for intellectual property reached 27,837. Meanwhile, in 2020, the number of online requests for intellectual property reached 54,609 by the end of June.

This growth must be supported with adequate technology to process requests, DJKI official Dr. Markoni said here on Wednesday.

"Through innovation and easiness to register patent rights, we aim to improve the people's prosperity. Creations by inventors must be appreciated so that they can continue to create, and our industry can compete in the international market," he explained.

The DJKI has been continuously seeking to improve data protection, job effectiveness, and the use of artificial intelligence (AI), he said.

"Of course, in the future, law protection, the people's awareness, and user awareness is needed so that we could improve the people's prosperity," he elaborated.

According to DJKI's information technology director, Dr. Sucipto, one of the strategic moves that DJKI has prepared is raising technological capacity, both in terms of infrastructure and application.

"When it comes to requests concerning intellectual property, a database is very important, which is why, at the moment, DJKI is improving the quality, speed, and accuracy of services through the online registration application system, IPROLINE," he stated.

Therefore, the DJKI has unveiled the adoption of IBM AI total solutions to facilitate patents and trademarks registration process, he informed.

The patent registration office has to have accurate and complete notes to ensure authenticity and avoid duplication of registered patents, he added.
