MyIPO Protects Your Creativity

7:30 AM 31 Comments A+ a-

Malaysians are getting more creative by the day.
I see a lot of new creations and brands coming up and I often wonder if all these innovators/ creators/ business developers/ entrepreneurs protect the labour of their creative thinking ie their products. Because 'copycats' love to imitate a great idea and tweak it into their own, which happens a lot nowadays. In Malaysia, we have heard about songs, makeup brands and headscarves designs being copied and some are being discussed in courts to solve the issues.

I have said that it is a kind of a recognition as 'copycats' only copy the best but I don't think the business owner would have the same sentiment about their creative inventions being duplicated.

In Malaysia, there is a statutory body that is responsible for the development and management of the intellectual property system i.e. patents, trademarks, industrial designs, copyrights and layout designs of integrated circuits in Malaysia. The body is called the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia or fondly named MyIPO.

Facts About Intellectual Property
Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the intellect for which a monopoly is assigned to designated owners by law. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are the rights granted to the creators of IP and include trademarks, copyright, patents, industrial design rights, and in some jurisdictions trade secrets. Artistic works including music and literature, as well as discoveries, inventions, words, phrases, symbols, and designs, can all be protected as intellectual property.

While intellectual property law has evolved over centuries, it was not until the 19th century that the term intellectual property began to be used, and not until the late 20th century that it became commonplace in the majority of the world.

Trivia about MyIPO
  • MyIPO is an agency under the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operative and Consumerism and prior to 1983, the intellectual property rights were administered by Pejabat Cap Dagangan dan Jaminhak before changing its name to Pejabat Cap Dagangan dan Paten and placed under the jurisdiction of the then Ministry of Trade and Industry.
  • After a restructuring on 27 October 2990, the office changed its name to Intellectual Property Division and placed under the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (which is now Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operative and Consumerism). The division was tasked to administer Patents Act 1983, Trade Marks Act 1976 and Copyright Act 1987.
  • Some acts that come under the jurisdiction of MyIPO [Industrial Designs Act 1996 | Layout-Designs of Integrated Circuits Act 2000 | Geographical Indications Act 2000]
  • The Division was corporatized on 3 March 2003 and renamed as Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (PHIM) before rebranded to MyIPO on 3 March 2005.
So, what kind of services do MyIPO offers to the mass?
Lots and lots and in such simple steps, your creative inventions will be secured and protected.

Hurm. I think now I want to also register #RawlinsGLAM as my intellectual property so that I will be the only one using it since I have been using the hashtag for like... forever for all my social media sharing.

As more and more entrepreneurs coming up, MyIPO is the best solution to protect all their creative inventions and by doing so, it will save them a lot of troubles when someone is claiming their rights over the inventions or manipulating their design to gain profits. As it is also MyIPO's mission to providing strong legal infrastructure and effective administration regime to enhance greater creativity and exploitation of intellectual property.

We all know that the court processes might take a while and a lot of cash, so it is the best for all innovators/ creators/ business developers/ entrepreneurs to register their business on the website to avoid the costly affairs.

Sekarang ni isu copycat sgt berleluasa dalam apa2 induatri pun. Raya baru2 ni isu copycat design baju kurung. So kalau tak di paten atau ada cap dagang susah juga nak claim tu design kita kan. Semua kena celik myIPO lepas ni nampaknya. Masih ramai yg tak aware lagi.

Utk protect content blog kita tak mahal pun kos. Cuma kos utk trademark je mahal. Kalau tak faham better tanya je staff myipo kat bangsar tu. Borang pun disediakan. Senang je. Hehehe

di zaman semua maklumat di hujung jari ni memang kita terdedah dengan spesis copycat ni semua. walaupun berisiko, harap2 dijauhkanlah sebab perkara macam ni bukan setakat merosakkan reputasi, bahkan menutup pintu rezeki orang lain. mujur ada kemudahan macam myipo ni. woohoo!
