Protecting your Intellectual The intellectual property rights in Malaysia comprises of patents, trademarks, industrial designs and copyright and since Malaysia is a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Paris Convention and Berne Convention, Malaysia has some strict laws on intellectual property rights. Let’s have a look on these rules and laws.
PATENTS: for any issue related to patents in Malaysia there is the Patents Act 1983 and the Patents Regulations 1986 and any only Malaysian citizen can apply for patent. If a foreigner wishes to apply for patent, he needs to hire a Malaysian agent for applying. As with any other country, any invention is worth a patent, if it is new, unique and involves an inventive step and is industrially useful. In line with Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), the patent in Malaysia is given for 20 years of time from filing the application which can be renewed for 10 year thereafter.
INDUSTRIAL DESIGNS: all the designs and especially the industrial designs in Malaysia are administered by the Industrial Designs Act 1996 and Industrial Designs Regulations 1999. These acts provide the cushion to protect the industrial designs as a personal property. For applying for the industrial design protection, the design has to be new and should not include method of construction or design that is dictated solely by function. Also, the design of the article must not be dependent upon the appearance of some other article.

I know that there are anomalies, and I know that not every star system is necessarily like ours, but what I am hoping to find out here is why, specifically, we don’t believe that most stars have a distinct probability of having orbiting planetary bodies.
