Main Article Content

Abstract

Non-traditional Trademarks also known as non-conventional trademarks develop due to business demands. The development of new trademarks like the sound, scent, three dimensions, and hologram are defined as non-traditional trademarks and non-conventional trademarks or modern trademarks. The international and national regulations of the trademarks are done through several instruments. In Indonesia, they are governed in Act No 20 of 2016 and the regulations of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights No 67 of 2016. Despite their regulations which are accommodated in the Act No 20 of 2016, the implementations of the regulation in Indonesia are as well-developed as that of other countries. The problems in the implementation of the non-traditional trademark protection are the responsibilities of the General Directorate of Intellectual Property especially in preparing the facilities and human resources.
