An internet domain name can function as a trademark when it is being used to identify goods or services in the marketplace. For example, the internet domain name www.vivian.com functions as a trademark when it is used as a website marketing or selling a product/service, but does not function as a trademark when it only displays the girl’s personal photos.
As long as a domain name is being used as a trademark in that it identifies the source of a product, it can be registered with the Indonesian IP Office as a trademark. Simply registering your domain name through a registrar (such as Network Solutions or register.com) does not mean that the domain name is protected as a trademark.
Since a domain name can function as a trademark, it can also make the owner liable for trademark infringement. Consequently, before using/adopting an internet domain name, a trademark search should be conducted to determine whether another party may have trademark rights in the domain name.
We can also arrange the registration of a “.co.id” domain name.
