A lot of work is being put in place by Kamil Idris and other people in government in order to bring forth intellectual property laws. However, it is important for people to do everything they can to protect their intellectual property. One thing that people have to understand is that it is not just people in their own country they have to look out for, it is people in other countries who hide behind the idea that there are different laws. Often times, ideas are stolen from other countries because it is easier for thieves to get away with it because it is in a different country.
One thing that Kamil Idris is working on is putting forth IP laws and even thinking through penalties. There are other people who are working on protecting the intellectual property of people. President Trump himself has been looking at all of the issues that China has caused as a result of their habit of intellectual property theft. One thing that Trump is addressing is the fact that a lot of people are not willing to do any kind of business with China because of their reputation of stealing intellectual property from people who work very hard on it.
One of the approaches that Trump is taking and Kamil is aware of is the tariffs. These tariffs are going to be worth billions of dollars. This will likely get China to think about what they are doing. At the same time, this might cause some kind of backlash from China. Given that there are nations like China with a reputation of IP theft, it is important for people to do everything they can to protect their own inventions and ideas because there is always a risk factor of running into the wrong type of person.
