Advantages of Copyrighted Keyway

Our copyrighted keyway designs are registered with the Malaysian Intellectual Property Office (MyIPO), ensuring robust legal protection within Malaysia. Copyright protection lasts for 50 years after the author’s death, providing long-term security for our designs. Patents, in contrast, offer protection for 20 years from the filing date, but it's important to note that patents filed in foreign countries do not cover Malaysia unless they are specifically filed and granted there. Infringement of copyright is a criminal offense, which can lead to severe penalties including fines and imprisonment, whereas patent infringement is considered a commercial offense and typically results in civil litigation, with remedies such as damages and injunctions. This combination of extended copyright protection and strong legal deterrence within Malaysia ensures the highest level of security and exclusivity for our keyway designs.
