Eddy Pelupessy


Legal protection of system knowledge and technology developed by the indigenous and other societies in Papua in the perspective of the Law No. 13/2016 on Patent is to follow an application, while the form of the legal protection can be identified from the implementation of Articles 19, 20, 71, and 76 of the Law No. 13/2016. Copying of the Papuan indigenous or other societies’ invention is an act against Article 1365 of the Civil Code. In order to give a permanent legal protection for the invention, therefore, the judge shall treat it as a violation against the law and he or she must identify the law that will not automatically make an analogue for the statement of Article 1365 as it is.

Keywords: Legal protection for knowledge system and technology; Patent.
