MyIPO is actually Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia. Where they are the responsible statutory body that took care of the development and management of intellectual properties. If you are wondering MyIPO is one of the goverment agency under KPDNKK.
Being a part time blogger, I think this is very relatable to me as I have a domain name that I think best to protect. Not just that you may also protect the picture you took, your business name, or domain name, your business name, your product name, the music you created, an idea, your company logo even to your product. There are many branches of Intellectual properties that you can protect. Just Basically it is very broad spectrum and best part of all it can be protected under the law.
Do you know how to pronouce MyIPO correctly? /maipo/ yes it is very simple.
As you can see above, I listed 5 types of Intellectual Property System. If you have no idea on where to start you can easily got to MyIPO website and they have a section where you can answer couple of simple question to lead you to which system isthe best to protect your intellectual properties.
Here are the vision and the Mission of MyIPO. It is a relieve to know that your creativity is taken seriously and will be protected under the law. I mean it is always nice to have an assurance.
Here are the historical timeline of how it all started.
