The modern European (Rechtstaat), or state based on Rule of Law, rests on Roman legal procedures but also on the tradisional of an unique system of checks and balances created in the late medieval period. This system has been influenced by a growth of the nation of the immunity of certain groups and persons from the power of the ruler (feudal king), along with the conception of the right of resistance to unjust authority and that of contract as a mutual engagement freely undertaken by free persons, derived form the feudal relation of vassalage.

The development of the rule of law conception in France can be characterized by two peculiar features of the Frecch concept :
  1. No French term existed as an equivalent of the term used to represent the conception of rule of law until the fifth republik (1958)
  2. France lacked real constitutionalism, as the Frech system did not very much revere constitutions and remedies connected to it. Between 1789 and 1959, France had 16 different constitutions (of which 5 in the revolutionary years between 1971 and 1804).
Instead of the supremacy of the constitution, the French adhered to the supremacy of parlianment (legislative sovereignty) with the legislative power as the major power of the state. It was only after 1977 that a new conception of Etat de droit emerged, with the introduction of a Conseil constitutionnel, a French constitutional court, as one of the main innovations of the constitution of the fifth republic (1958).

Also in Germany, rule of law at first meant Gesetzesstaat, in as accordance with the thin conception of formal legality. The term Rechtstaats was first used by Johan Wilhelm Placidus in his Literatur der Staatslehre. Ein Versuch. But before the second world war, the German legal system had itself more the character of a Gesetzesstaats of rule of law with its main focus on the principle of legality in the sense of administrative action to be submitted to law (legal rules).

Since 1949, when under the influence of the allied forces the new Grundgesetz or Basic Law (constitution) came into force, Germany has a rulr of law in the sense of formal legality and democracy, and a constitutional court that controls whether statutory law and judicial decisions are in accordance with the constitutions and the fundamental rights mentioned in it.

As in France and Germany, the Ducth rule of law has fore a very long time stressed the importance of parliamentary sovereignty more than constitutional sovereignty with its a accent of human rights. Until now there is no constitutional court in the Netherlands and the juges is forbidden to evaluate whether a statute is in accordance with the constitution.

Unlike typical European constitution, the basic charter of the United States says nothing about a commitment to the rule of law. The closest constitutional analogue is the phrase prohibiting the deprivation of 'life, liberty, or property without due process of law'. This concept of due process has become, in American law, the most vigilant guarantor of the set of procedural rights and remedies that are available to individual citizens, which we usually mean when we refer to the rule of law.

The (sometimes forced) imposition of the American model of the rule of law all over the world should not make us blind for reality. In the United States itself there is a debate going on about the nature, merits and limitations of this spicimen of the rule of law, which discussion is often glossed over in the universal propaganda.

An element in the history of the Rule of Law following the English conception is the fact, different from other states and legal systems, at the end of the Middle Ages, there already existed in England a centuries-old legal tradition, with its own system of education and body of knowledge, which made that courts could indepently withstand attempts at regal interference.

An increasingly specialized and autonomous legal profession administered law and took care of its regular implementation with courts established at the center of this institutional complex and judges who served as "the guardians of and spokesman for the law".

Islamic Law

Concept refert to a state which al-Qur'an, Sunnah and human reason work together and together constitute the Islamic. The nomocracy Islam can be characterized of principles. These principles are are mentioned in the Koran. The character of the Islamic state and called it a "theocracy". In Islam equality is prominent. That's "nomocracy" is a far better name, wherein the power is held by the law which comes from Allah. Nomocracy Islam as rule of Islamic Law.

In the Indonesian history, Muslims have often felt subordinated by the old artistocracies who were only superficially Muslim. Devout Muslims therefore regarded the Rule of Law and especially its emphasis on social equality as a corrective continuiting influence of hierarchy and privilege of former and current elites.

Presently, and also abroad, moderate Islamic Indonesian intellectuals appear to play a wholesome and guinding role in politic and particularly in the discussion on the future of Indonesian rule of law.

Like common law, adat law is not based on codes or law books but on presedents and general rules of what so called adat communities feel as just and fair (equity). Another similiarity with common law is that it applies to everybody, from the highest to the lowest strata in society.

Is adat law in acoordande with the rule of law ? Not with fromal legality, we presume, at least not in the general sense of written law that is general, public, prospective and sufficiently clear. But if we regard it from a more substantive perspective, as a corpus of rules of which the adat society is suffiently conscious and which are to be considered as representative of the common view on what law should be, the answer could be more variegated and even positive.

In adat law we can make a rough distinction between law to be spoken by adat gremia of the community itself and the decisions of hudges from outside who are appointed by the central government. The first group, which stems from the community itself, has a good overview of the living law in that community. The second group can only rely on rules and opinions on fairnes and legal consciousness provided by advisors from the community itself and/or rules distilled and written down for the respective adat communities by e.g. Van Vollenhoven and his disciples. Are the latter still valid ? We don't think so because adat law is a living and always developing, instrument and Van Vollenhoven has been dead for a very long time.

As to elements of formal legality as indentified abovre, one could argue that the local influence of the deciding adat gremia may sometimes be too strong to speak of "political liberty", in the sense of sufficient limitations on the influence of the "sovereign".

What is 'Rule of Law'? It is not possible to give an unequivocal answer to this question. Concepts of Rule of Law and Rechtsstaatb have varied from one place to the other and over time and no one has ever come up with a definition generally agreed upon. As a result there often is a profound degree of misunderstanding between legal scholars and others when discussing 'Rule of Law'.

Cenceptions of Rule of Law can be devided into two general types, thin and thick. A thin conception stresses the formal or instrumental aspects of Rule of Law - those features that any legal system allgedly must posses to function effectively as a system of laws, regardless of whether the legal system is part of a democratic or non-democratic society, capitalis, liberal or theocratic.

A thick or substantive conception of Rule of Law, on the other hand, is characterized by Peerenboom as a state with the basic elements of a thin Rule of Law state plus elements of political morality 'such as particular economic arrangements (free-market capitalism, central planning,'Asia developmental state' or other varieties of capitalism), forms of government (democratic, socialist, soft authoritarian) or conceptions of human rights (liberatian, classical liberal, social welfare liberal, communitarian, 'Asia values' etc).

At the outset of our endeavour, we want to draw attention to two different meanings of the term 'law' itself. The different views on rule of law in the countries under examination can be partly traced back to terminology. Most European languages have two different words for the English and the American word 'law'. The first term has the meaning of the word 'Gezetz' in German, 'Loi' in French, 'Wet' in Dutch, 'Ley' in Spanish (compare 'Undang-undang' in Indonesia), In all those languages there also exists another term for 'law', which expresses a higher nation of law and is reflected in the word 'Recht' in German and Dutch, 'Droit' in French, 'Derecho' in Spanish ('Hukum' in Indonesia).

This Law in a higher sense is related to the rights of 'Human Rights' in the sense of higher rights or principal rights.

Hence we can derive two different manifestation/meaning for the Rule of Law :
  • Rule of law in the narrow, which means a state based on the principle that the government is bound by rules that have been written and announced beforehand (compare hereafter the thin conception of rule of law).
  • Rule of law in broad sense, which means an ideal for good government with in it the dimension of good Law or Right. In this concept great empasis is being laid on the constitution and on judicial review (compare hereafter the thick conception of rule of law).

Pengaturan tentang melawan hukum dalam Kitab Undang-undang Hukum Perdata hanya dalam beberapa pasal saja, sebagaimana juga terjadi di negara-negara yang menganut sistem Eropa Kontinental lainnya, tetapi kenyataan menunjukkan bahwa gugatan perdata ada yang di pengadilan didominasi oleh gugatan melawan hukum, disamping gugatan ingkar janji kontrak (wanprestasi).

PEMBUKTIAN KEJAHATAN MAYANTARA (verification of cyber crime)

Kemajuan teknologi komputer dan internet telah merubah masyarakat dari bersifat lokal menuju masyarakat yang bersifat global. Kehadiran internet telah merubah cara pandang dalam kehidupan manusia. Kehidupan yang nyata bertambah menjadi realitas bersifat maya (virtual). Perubahan cara pandang atau pola pikir yang semula paper based menjadi electronik based. Ini menjadi lebih jelas, ketika kita melakukan transaksi secara on-line.

Dalam praktek hukum perubahan ini menimbulkan perdebatan di kalangan ahli huku. Dalam hukum pidana terjadi perdebatan, apakah masih relevan model pembuktian konvensional ketika dihadapkan pada kejahatan virtual yang biasa dikenal dengan cyber crime. Membuktikan mengandung maksud dan usaha untuk menyatakan kebenaran atas suatu peristiwa.

Cyber crime semuanya serba maya. Dalam kejahatan ini biasanya pelaku melakukan aksinya seorang diri. Kejahatan yang dilakukan berbasis elektronik. Dalam Kitab Undang-undang Hukum Pidana di Indonesia tidak ada petunjuk tentang penggunaan alat bukti ini, mengingat dilakukan secara virtual yang akan sulit sekali untuk dilihat kapan (tempos delcti), bagaimana caranya (modusoperandi), dan dimana pelaku melakukan perbuatannya (locus delicti).

Progress of technology of computer and internet have change society from having the character of local go to society having the character of is global.

PRIBADI (person)

Yang dinamakan pribadi di dalam hukum adalah siapa saja yang dapat menjadi pendukung hak-hak dan kewajiban- kewajiban hukum, yaitu disebut juga sebagai subyek hukum. Bisa menjadi pendukung hak dan kewajiban artinya adalah mempunyai hak dan/atau kewajiban yang diakui oleh hukum. Sekalipun seseorang itu secara teoritis pada suatu saat tidak mempunyai hak maupun kewajiban (hukum) sama sekali, ia tetap saja sebagai person, ia tetap mempunyai kewenangan hukum.

Sebaliknya suatu badan hukum yang telah dibubarkan, selama proses likuidasi, masih dianggap sebagai badan hukum, karena kekayaannya, hak-hak dan kewajiban-kewajibannya tidak dengan sendirinya beralih kepada para manusia sebagai pemiliknya. Di dalam hukum, untuk hak-hak tersebut digunakan istilah teknis hukum, yaitu hak subyektif, namun dalam prakteknya orang biasa menyebutnya dengan "hak" saja.

Sekalipun dikatakan bahwa badan hukum bisa mempunyai hak dan kewajiban, tetapi sesuai dengan sifat dan keadaannya, tidak berarti bahwa badan hukum bisa mempunyai semua hak-hak dan kewajiban-kewajiban yang dipunyai oleh manusia (person alamiah).

Orang mulai mempunyai kepribadian sebagai manusia sejak ia dilahirkan, dengan begitu ia menjadi subyek hukum. Tetapi anak yang ada dalam kandungan seorang perempuan, dianggap sebagai telah dilahirkan, bilamana juga untuk kepentingan si anak menghendakinya (misalnya masalah waris). Mati sewaktu dilahirkan, dianggap ia tidak perdah ada.

Which named by person in law is whosoever able to become supporting of rights and obligations of law, that is referred as also as law subject. Can become supporting of its meaning rights and obligations is to have obligation and/or rights confessed by law. Even if that someone theoretically at one time have no right and also obligation (law) at all, its just remain to be as person, its remain to have outhoritative of law.

On the contrary a legal body which have been disbanded, during liquidation process, still considered to be legal body, because its properties, its rights and obligations do not by itself transfer to all human being as its owner. In law, for the nrights used by technical term of law, that is rights of subjective, but in practice of common people mention with "rights" just.

Even if said that by legal body can have rights and obligations, but as naccording to nature of and its situation, did not mean that legal body can have all obligations and rights had by human being (natural person).

People start to have personality as human being since its borne, that wat he become law subject, but existing child in content a women, considered to be have been borne, when also for the sake of the child want its (for example matter of heir). Dead is time borne, to be assumed by its have never there.

ARTI PENTING PUTUSAN HAKIM (important meaning of judge decision)

Di dalam undang-undang termuat hukum, berwujud aturan-aturan. Ini merupakan hukum yang tertulis. Tetapi di dalam tindakan-tindakan seseorang pun juga tersimpul hukum. dari kenyataan-kenyataan itupun juga dapat diketemukan aturan-aturan. Ini merupakan hukum yang tidak tertulis, sekedar itu tidak juga terdapat dalam sebuah undang-undang.

Jika seseorang melakukan tindakan yang tidak sebagaimana hukumnya, jikalau ada persoalan bagaimanakah hukumnya, maka harus ditemukan bagaimanakah atau apakah hukumnya itu. Kita sendiri juga dapat mengatakan bagaimanakah hukumnya itu dalam suatu hal, akan tetapi pendapat kita itu adalah pendapat perseorangan. Pendapat kita itu tidak mempunyai kekuatan mengikat secara obyektif.

Orang-orang yang pendapatnya justru mempunyai kekuatan mengikat yaitu petugas hukum, yang salah satunya ialah hakim, atau pengadilan. Hakim di dalam keputusannya, menetapkan bagaimana hukumnya yang berlaku di dalam sesuatu hal. Petugas hukum lainnya ialah pembentuk undang-undang. Tetapi tugas hakim berlainan daripada tugas pembentuk undang-undang, walaupun pada asasnya sama, yaitu menetapkan hukum. Hakim memutuskan hukumnya yang berlaku secara konkrit, sedangkan pembentuk undang-undang secara abstrak.

Di negara-negara Anglo-Saxon, termasuk Amerika Serikat. Di sana para hakim terikat kepada keputusan yang sudah ada lebih dahulu dari hakim-hakim yang lebih tinggi dan hakim-hakim yang sejajar. Dengan demikian di negara itu terjadi "judge made law", atau "case law". Sedangkan di Indonesia tidak demikian karena putusan hakim terdahulu dalam perkara kemudian yang serupa boleh diikuti oleh hakim yang akan mengambil keputusan. Kata "boleh" berarti tidak harus.

In Code included law, extant of orders. This represent written law. But in someone action is also concluded by law of facts of that even also can be met by orders. This represent unwritten law, simply that do not also there are in a Code.

If someone conduct action which do not as its law, if there is problem how its law, hence have to be found how or what is its law. Our own also can tell how its law in a matter, however our opinion that is opinion of civil. Our opinion that don't have strength fasten objectively.

Its Opinion people who exactly have strength fasten that is officer of law, what one of them is judge, or justice. Judge in its decision, specifying how its law which go into effect in something matter. Officer of other law is lawmaker. But different judge duty than duty lawmaker, although at its is same principle, that is specifying law. Judge decide its law which go into effect by concrete, while lawmaker of abstractionly.

In Anglo-Saxin nations, including United States. Over there all judge tied to decision which have there in advace from higher level judges and parallel judges. Thereby in that state happened "judge made law", or "case law". While in Indonesia do not that way because former judge decision in similar case later may follow by judge to take decision. Word "may" mean do not have to.

PEMAHAMAN TENTANG KONTRAK (understanding about contract)

Ada tiga sistem hukum yang dikenal di dunia, namun yang paling menonjol adalah "common law legal system" yang berlaku di negara-negara Anglo Saxon. Sementara itu sistem "civil law legal system" dianut di negara-negara Eropa Kontinental. Dan yang terakhir adalah "socialist law legal system" yang sebenarnya lebih banyak dipengaruhi oleh civil law.

Dalam merancang kontrak atau pembuatan suatu konsep perjanjian harus mengacu kepada sistem hukum yang dianut. Di era globalisasi yang mempengaruhi sistem hukum yang diterapkan karena terjadi perjumpaan antara sistem hukum yang berlainan.

Dalam merancang kontrak, yang pembuatnya merupakan subjek-subjek hukum dari negara-negara yang menganut sistem hukum yang berbeda. Kontrak itu sebenarnya adalah suatu perjanjian, sehingga dalam membuat atau merancang suatu draft kontrak, mutlak diperlukan suatu pengetahuan dasar, yaitu mengenai teori hukum perjanjian. Pembuatan kontrak atau perjanjian tertulis, mempunyai kaitan dengan masalah pembuktian.

There is three recognized law system in world, but most uppermost is "common law legal system" going into effect in countries of Anglo Saxon. Meanwhile system "civil law legal system" embraced in countries of European Continental. And last is "socialist law legal system" what in fact more influenced by civil law.

In designing contract or making an agreement concept have to relate to embraced law system. In globalization era influencing applied law system because happened meet between different law system.

In designing contract, which is its maker represent subject law from nations embracing different law system. That contract in fact is an agreement, so that in making or design a draft of contract, absolute needed by a basic knowledges, that is hitting contractual law theory. Making of contract or agreement written, having bearing with matter of verification.

HAK DAN KEWAJIBAN (rights and obligation)

Konsep "kewajiban" dan konsep "hak" memberikan prioritas peringkat kepada hak. Dalam lingkup hukum, kita berbicara tentang "hak dan kewajiban", dan bukan "kewajiban dan hak", seperti halnya dalam lingkup moral, di mana penekanan yang lebih besar diberikan pada kewajiban. Kita berbicara tentang hak sebagai sesuatu yang berbeda dari hukum.

Namun hak adalah hukum. Hukum dalam arti kata subyektif yang berlawanan dengan "hukum" dalam pengertian obyektif, yakni suatu tatanan hukum atau sistem norma. Untuk membedakan hak dan hukum, kita perlu berbicara dalam bahasa Jerman tentang subjektives Recht dan objektives Recht ( hukum subyektif dan hukum obyektif).

Consept "obligation" and consept "rights" giving level priority to rights. In law scope, we converse about "right an obligation", and non "obligation and right", just as in moral scope, where emphasis of larger ones passed to obligation. We converse about rights as something that differ from law.

But rights is law. Law in word meaning of subyektif adversative with "law" in congeniality of objective, namely an arrange law or norm system. To differentiate law and rights, we need to converse in German about subjektives Recht and of objektives Recht (subjective law and objective law).

ASPEK TEKNOLOGI PERLINDUNGAN PATEN (technological aspect protection of patent)

Indonesia mengalami pertumbuhan ekonomi yang sebagian besar dipicu oleh penanam modal asing sebelum krisis ekonomi tahun 1997. Gejolak politik dan inkonsistensi hukum pada setiap periode pemerintahan turut mewarnai penanaman modal asing di Indonesia.

Indonesia mau tidak mau harus melangkah maju sebagai konsekuensinya menjadi anggota GATT/WTO dan dalam rangka menyambut globalisasi. Untuk melaksanakan pembangunan di segala bidang, utamanya dalam rangka industrialisasi, mutlak diperlukan teknologi. Pengembangan teknologi tersebut diperlukan pengaturan paten.

Pengaturan paten pada hakekatnya adalah perlindungan paten itu sendiri yang berfungsi untuk melindungi penemuan sekaligus sebagai perangsang pengembangan teknologi, selanjutnya mewujudkan kesejahteraan masyarakat sebagai pengguna manfaat teknologis dan ekonomis paten.

Di Jerman, perlindungan luas, meskipun sama-sama merujuk kepada Konvensi Strasbourg dan Konvensi Paten Eropa. Inggris memberikan perlindungan yang sempit bagi luasnya perlindungan terhadap penemuan. Penentuan luasnya perlindungan dilakukan dengan berdasarkan penafsiran hakim yang dituangkan melalui putusan pengadilan, sesuai prinsip state decisis (common law).

Luasnya perlindungan penemuan di Inggris masih lebih besar dibandingkan Amerika. Di Amerika, tidak diatur luasnya perlindungan. Bahkan di Jepan, luasnya perlindungan sama seimbang dengan Amerika. Di Indonesia, luasnya perlindungan tidak diatur dalam Undang-undang Republik Indonesia Nomo 14 Tahun 2001 tentang Paten.

Dalam menentukan batas perlindungan Paten di Indonesia, seharusnya tidak diberikan terlalu luas sehingga tidak mengakibatkan terlalu besarnya monopoli yang diperoleh dalam mengeksploitasi penemuan tersebut, yaitu demi kepentingan para pihak, baik individu, masyarakat dan negara dalam pertumbuhan ekonomi dan teknologi, serta jaminan kepastian hukum.

Indonesia experienced of growth of economics is mostly triggered by foreign investor before economic crisis of 1997 year. Political distortion and inconsistence law in each period of governance partake to influence foreign invesment in Indonesia.

Indonesia will do not want to have to do progress as its consequence become member of GATT/WTO and in order to greeting globalization. To execute development in all sector. The core important in order to industrialization, needed by absolute of technology. Development of the technology needed regulation of patent.

Arrangement of patent intrinsically is protection of functioning itself paten to protect invention at the same time as incentive of development of technology, hereinafter realize prosperity of society as consumer of economic and technological benefit of patent.

In Germany, wide of protection, though both of the same refer to Convention of Strasbourg and Convention Patent Europe. English give narrow protection to protection broadness to invention. Determination of protection broadness conducted with pursuant to interpretation of poured judge through justice decision, according to principle of state decisis (common law).

Broadness protection of invention in English still compared to bigger of America. In America, do not be arranged by protection broadness. Even in Japan, Well-balanced is same protection broadness with America. In Indonesia, protection broadness do not be arranged in Code Republik of Indonesia number of 14 year of 2001 about Patent.

In delimitating protection of Patent in Indonesia, shouldn't be given too wide of so that do not result too big monopolistic which obtained in exploiting the invention, that is for the benefit of the parties, good of individual, state and society in growth of technology and economics, and also rule of law guarantee.

Hak-hak masyarakat yang diatur dan dilindungi oleh hukum harus dijamin pemenuhannya. Hukum harus mampu menyelesaikan masalah-masalah yang timbul melalui sistem hukum pula. Istilah class action merupakan gabungan dari dua kata class dan action. Pengertian class adalah sekumpulan orang yang mempunyai kesamaan sifat, ciri, dan kepentingan, sedangkan pengertian action dalam dunia hukum adalah tuntutan yang diajukan kepengadilan.

Hukum acara perdata di Indonesia tidak mengenal prosedur gugatan secara perwakilan sebagaimana dimaksud di dalam Undang-undang Republik Indonesia tetang Pengelolaan Lingkungan Hidup (UUPLH), maupun prosedur class action sebagaimana diperkenalkan di dalam Undang-undang Republik Indonesia tentang Perlindungan Konsumen (UUPK) dan telah lama dikenal di Negara-negara common law.

Dengan adanya kemiripan antara gugatan perwakilan sebagaimana dimaksud di dalam UUPLH, serta class action sebagaimana dimaksud di dalam UUPK, ada kemungkinan pembentuk UUPLH dan UUPK ingin mengimplementasikan prinsip-prinsip class action dalam sistem peradilan di Indonesia.

Dari pengertian tentang class action dapat diketahui adanya dua unsur pokok dalam pengajuan gugatan secara class action. Dua unsur pokok tersebut adalah :
1. perwakilan kelompok; dan
2. keanggotaan kelompok.
Wakil kelompok dan anggota kelompok ini merupakan pihak-pihak dalam class action.

Arranged society rights and under the aegis of law have to be guaranteed its accomplishment. Law have to can finish the problem of arising out through law system too. Term class action represent aliance from word of class and of action. Congeniality of class is a group of one who have equality of nature, caracteristic, and importance, while congeniality of action in the world of law is raised by demand justice.

Procedure of civil law in Indonesia do not know suing procedure delegationly as referred to in Code Republic of Indonesia abour Management of Environment (UUPLH) and also prosedure of class action as introduced in Code Republic of Indonesia about is Consumerism (UUPK) and have old recognized in Nations of common law.

With existenceof looking like between delegation suing as refered to in UUPLH, and also class action as in intention in UUPK, there is possibility of maker of UUPLH and of UUPK wish principal implementation of class action in system of judicature in Indonesia.

From congeniality about class action can know the existence of two fundamental element in proffering of suing by class action. Two the fundamental element is :
1. representative class; and
2. members of class.
Group proxy and this group member represent the parties in class action.

KEDUDUKAN PENGETAHUAN TRADISIONAL TERHADAP PATEN (existence traditional knowledge to patent)

Pengetahuan tradisional adalah karya masyarakat tradisional yang bisa berupa adat budaya, karya seni, dan teknologi yang telah turun-temurun digunakan sejak nenek moyang. Sistem paten Barat meninggalkan sebuah model khusus pada suatu waktu yang khusus di dalam sejarah dan keasliannya hilang di dalam waktu.

Model-model baru mungkin akan dibutuhkan untuk melindungi pengetahuan tradisional dan ini tidak mudah untuk menciptakannya. Untuk beberapa hal, merupakan tamparan politik dari inisiatif kebenaran, selain melihatnya sebagai penghargaan yang adil.

Pengenalan model-model itu akan membantu mengalirkan naiknya air pasang terhadap TRIPs dengan menunjukan kesamaan negara-negara berkembang termiskin bahwa hak kekayaan intelektual bisa menjadi sebuah kesempatan, tidak hanya sebuah ancaman.

Akan tetapi seni yang telah dahulu ini pada pengetahuan tradisional tidak dapat diidentifikasikan pada saat pemeriksaan pendaftaran paten oleh pemeriksa paten.

Traditional knowledge is traditional society masterpiece which can in the form of cultural custom, swan song, and technology which have by generations used since ancestors. Western patent system grew out of a particular model of innovation at a particular time in history and its origins are lost in the mists of time.

New models will probably be needed to protect such traditional knowledge, and these will not be easy to create. To Same, such initiatives smack of political correctness, others see them as fair reward.

Their introduction would help to return the rising tide against TRIPs by showing even the poorest developing countries that intellectual property rights can be opportunity, not just a threat.

However this prior art consisted of traditional knowledge which could not be identified by the patent examiners during the examination of the patent application.

REPARASI TERHADAP KORBAN PELANGGARAN HAM (reparation to victim collicion of human rights)

Hak Asasi Manusia melahirkan tuntutan-tuntutan warga negara selaku penyandang hak kepada negara. Kewajiban yang utama negara terhadap hak asasi manusia, yaitu :
1. untuk tidak melanggar;
2. untuk menjamin penghormatan terhadap hak asasi manusia.

Reparasi terhadap korban pelanggaran hak asasi manusia yang mempertanyakan upaya hukum nasional dan upaya hukum internasional merupakan isu hukum. Setiap pelanggaran hak asasi manusia merupakan bentuk kewajiban hak asasi manusia yang kedua.

Hak asasi manusia adalah hak hukum maka harus ada upaya hukum, sehingga korban dapat menempuh upaya hukum berdasarkan pertimbangan yang berdasarkan bentuk atau jenis pelanggarannya. Adapun berdasarkan hukum internasional, negara yang melakukan pelanggaran hak asasi manusia bertanggung gugat secara internasional. Penerapan sanksi internasional supaya negara pelanggar hak asasi manusia melakukan reparasi terhadap korban dapat menjadi alternatif.

Apakah hukum nasional di beberapa negara telah mengatur jelas tentang bagaimana upaya hukum dalam rangka reparasi terhadap korban pelanggaran hak asasi manusia? Sebagai contoh di Indonesia hanya mengenal istilah kompensasi, restitusi, dan rehabilitasi yang tidak lain merupakan bentuk khusus dari reparasi.

Human rights bear citizen demands as owner of rights to state. Most important obligation of state to human rights, that is :
1. the duty to abstain from infringing upon human rights;
2. the duty to guarantee respect of these rights.

Reparation to victim collision of human rights questioning national law effort and international law effort represent law issue. Each collision of human right represent from obligation of second human rights.

Human rights is rights law hence there must be legal effort, so that victim can go through legal effort pursuant to consideration which pursuant to its collision type or form. As for pursuant to international law, state conducting collision of human rights account to sue internationally. Applying of international sanction so that state trespasser of human rights reparation to victim can become alternative.

What national law in some state have arranged clear about how legal effort in order to reparation to victim collision of human rights? ForExample in Indonesia only recognizing compensation term, restitution, and rehabilitate which is not other represent special form of reparation.

POSISI PENTING HUKUM KONTRAK INTERNASIONAL (important position of international contract law)

Kontrak internasional saat ini merupakan aktivitas terpenting yang dilakukan oleh para pengusaha atau pedagang di dunia. Mereka membeli produk di suatu negara dan menjualnya di negara ketiga atau di negaranya. Bentuk dan isi kontrak pun cukup luas sehingga perkembangannya semakin cepat.

Saat ini kontrak telah pula berkembang dan memuat transaksi di bidang jasa, seperti kontrak konstruksi, kontrak di bidang transportasi dan telekomunikasi, kontrak jasa perbankan dan asuransi, jasa pariwisata, jasa entertainment, dan lain-lain. Berkembangnya ruang lingkup kontrak tersebut, khususnya transaksi perdagangan atau bisnis yang modern, sehingga kebutuhan hukum mengenai kontrak semakin nyata, namun aturan-aturan hukum yang dirumuskan secara formal belum cukup berkembang. Hukum yang mengatur bidang ini mengalami kesulitan karena kelemahan hukum itu sendiri.

Perkembangan teknik-teknik perdagangan yang cepat kadang kala sulit dibarengi dengan perkembangan hukum yang mengakomodirnya. Beberapa kepentingan negara lain meliputi masalah hukum pajak, kepabeanan, perlindungan lingkungan, kesehatan, keselamatan manusia, masalah standarisasi, labelisasi atau sertifikasi, hingga masalah yang terkait sengketa dan peradilan. Masing-masing negara harus memikirkan hal tersebut, yaitu bagaimana aturan hukum yang terkait dengan aktivitas kontrak internasional dapat terpenuhi.

International contract in this time represent all important activity which conducted by all merchant or entrepreneur in world. They buy product in a state and selling it in third state or in its state. Form and content even also enough wide so that its growth faster.

In this time contract had also expanded and load transaction in service sector, like construction contract, contract in transportation sector and telecomunications, banking service contract and insurance, tourism service, service of entertinment, and others. Expanding of it contract scope, speciality commerce transaction or modern business, so that requirement of law conceming contract progressively reality, but formulated law other not yet enough expanded. Law arranging this area find difficulties because weakness of itself law.

Growth of commerce techniques which quickly difficult once in a while followed with growth of law accomodating it. Some importance of other state cover the problem of lease law, tollbooth, protection of environment, health, safety of human being, problem of standarisation, labelisation or sertification, till the problem of related of dispute and jurisdiction. Each state have to think of mentioned, that is now how law order which telated to international contract activity earn fufilled.

PERKEMBANGAN HAK ASASI MANUSIA DI INDONESIA (growth of human rights in Indonesia)

Pelanggaran tidak saja dilakukan oleh penguasa terhadap rakyat, melainkan juga terjadi dalam hubungan antara sesama anggota masyarakat. Dalam suasana reformasi di Indonesia, tidak jarang wacana hak asasi manusia memicu debat publik yang tidak berkesudahan. Selain memberikan pencerahan, debat ini juga menimbulkan kebingungan. Karena penyalahgunaan isu hak asasi manusia hanya dapat diuraikan jika pemahaman yang memadai tentang gagasan awal, konsep dan norma-norma hak asasi manusia telah dimiliki.

Collision is not even conducted by power to people, but also happened in link between society member humanity. In reform situation in Indonesia, not ralely human right discourse trigger public debate which do not have outcome. Besides giving clarification, this debate also generate muzziness. Because abuse of human right issue can only be elaborated if understanding of adequate about idea early, human right norms and concept have been owned.

MEMBANGUN KESATUAN HUKUM NASIONAL (build unity of national law)

Sebagai Negara berkembang, Indonesia mempunyai keinginan yang kuat untuk melaksanakan pembangunan di segala bidang, termasuk pembangunan bidang hukum, guna menunjang dan mengatur pembangunan bidang ekonomi. Pembangunan perekonomian Indonesia tidak selalu diikuti oleh perencanaan dan pembentukan hukum yang menunjang dan mengatur perekonomian tersebut.

Sampai dengan saat ini, aspek-aspek kehidupan bermasyarakat, berbangsa dan bernegara, terutama pembangunan hukum nasional sangat terabaikan. Kebutuhan tentang peraturan perundang-undangan yang harmonis dan terintegrasi menjadi sangat diperlukan untuk mewujudkan ketertiban, menjamin kepastian dan perlindungan hukum.

As Developing countries, Indonesia have strong desire to execute development in all sector, including development in law sector, utilize to support and arrange development in economic sector. Development of economic of Indonesia don't always followed by planning and forming of law which supporting and arranging the economic.

Up to in this time, societal life aspects, nation and state, especially development of national law very uncared. requirement about regulation which harmonious law and integrated to become very needed to realize orderliness, guarantying rule of law and protection of law.
