by Hayyan Ul Haq
International Journal of Intellectual Property Management (IJIPM), Vol. 2, No. 1, 2008


Abstract: This work aims to re-examine the (existence of an) exclusive right in optimising the production and dissemination of information and technology under an intellectual property regime. To visualise the idea, this paper has identified and mapped some substantial issues, which are classified, into: symptoms; core problem; root causes. This paper offers an Indonesian perspective in empowering society to appropriately access information and technology. At the end, this paper emphasises the importance of the Pancasila as the grand norm, which contains various crystallised Indonesian values that are linked to and match universal values, such as unity (keutuhan), balance (keseimbangan), harmonisation (keserasian), and sustainability (keberlanjutan), in optimising the production and dissemination of the intellectual products for the greatest benefit of the people.
