IP as Collateral in Indonesia: New Regulation and Implementation Challenges
We are excited to inform about a significant development in Indonesia's regulatory landscape. Government Regulation No. 24 of 2022 on Creative Economy (“GR 24/2022”), signed to revitalize and boost the growth of Indonesia's creative industry, introduces a groundbreaking opportunity. This regulation paves the way for the use of Intellectual Property (IP) assets as collateral to secure financing from banks and other financial institutions.

This regulation outlines a framework that allows bank financial institutions and non-bank financial institutions to utilize IPs as collateral.
