Authors : Dr. Ranti Fauza Mayana, SH and Tisni Santika SH, MH

Abstract: Creativity is becoming a key driver of local and global economic growth and the economic development. The cultural based innovations in a rich cultural nation like Indonesia highly depend on the synchronization of the local creativity, technology and cultural diversity. The aim of this study is to explore cultural based creativity which is provides endless possibilities to create many innovations mostly consist of adaptation based on the existing cultures. The “grassroots” innovations in Indonesia represent the informal sector innovations which have been developed by low and middle class society at grassroots to provide solutions for their own problems. In this case current Indonesia intellectual property should be able to accommodate protection for the innovations which are adapting the existing cultural traditions and have low level of novelty and inventiveness. Therefore, it is advisable for Indonesia to focus its own intellectual property system which can provide access of intellectual property rights to the cultural based innovators so that they are having access to intellectual property protection and able to reap the fruitful benefit of their creativity and at the end promote cultural based industries as the proper beneficial sector and competitive advantages regarding Indonesia’s position in global market.
