What patent rights can a party obtain through a licence?
Indonesia

Answer ... A patent holder may grant a licence to a third party to exercise all or some of its rights in a registered patent as mentioned in question 2.1.

A licence agreement over a registered patent in Indonesia must be recorded with the DGIP. Otherwise, the licence agreement will have no legal effect against third parties. As such, if the registered patent is infringed in Indonesia, the licensee will not be entitled to take any legal action.
