In Malaysia, protection for copyright owners is accorded under the Copyright Act 1987 which allows them to sue for damages in the event of infringement.
There is no formal registration system for copyrights in Malaysia as these are granted automatically. However, under Section 42 of the Copyright Act 1987, the owner can prepare a Statutory Declaration as a supporting document or file a Voluntarily Notification and deposit his/her copyrighted work with MyIPO.
We provide services in the preparation of Statutory Declaration for clients who wish to undertake this precautionary measure for their copyright protection.
