IPCM: NSC never trademarked stripes

FOUL! is back online.

The Malay Mail reports what the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (IPCM) said about the National Sports Council's (NSC) supposed ownership over the three tiger stripe design:

"We have not seen any application from the NSC. Our records show Mesuma Sports (Sdn Bhd) is the registered proprietor of the design."

This contradicts Telekom Malaysia's statement:

TM wishes to clarify that we have obtained the legal rights from the respective rights owners, namely the National Sports Council (NSC) and the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM), to utilise NSC’s Panthera jersey, inclusive of both NSC’s and OCM’s logos, to be used throughout TM’s “Team Malaysia”.

And NSC's director general Zolkples Embong's statement:

“....NSC has registered the design” and questioned “what right does Mesuma have to register the design?”

But has the NSC registered this under the Industrial Design Act 1996 as discussed in Frankie D' Cruz's column here?

If true, then why NSC kept mum when Mesuma Sports' application to trademark the three tiger stripes went public prior getting the trademark certificate?

Did NSC register the design under the Industrial Design Act 1996 before the tiger stripe design was shown to public in 2005? Was it for 5 stripes or 3 stripes?

HD says: I rest my case.


  1. Apa main curi-curi ni NSC? Takde class ler.

  2. Mesuma yang curi..ada ke patut dia kata dia punya. dia supplier yang nsc suruh buat baju..the design and patern are conceive by nsc not by mesuma

  3. legally mesuma was right but they steal the design from nsc in the broad daylight

  4. Mesuma punya owner memang terlibat dengan konspirasi nak jatuhkan orang. Kita kenal dia lama sangat. Dahlah jadi multi millionaire masih tak cukup dengan apa yang ada. Dia mahu sapu business satu Malaysia. Tamak betul china ni. He is the master mind behind toppling great Malay Sports leaders. Macam dia ni bagus sangat. Tengkoklah dia ni..Orang dah benci kat dia yang gunakan duit until beli orang. Apa dia buat bila nak letakkan candidate dia dalam majlis olimpik Dan memastikan candidate dia menang dgn apa cara sekalipun. Sedarlah Kita orang. Macam mana sports negara ni nak Berkembang kalau Kita masih ada orang Yang buat perkara Jijik utk kepentingan diri sendiri Dan businessnya. Sudahlah George heng, cukup dengan duit haram u makan..hentikan kerja kamu yg kotor nak jatuhkan orang.

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
