NSC wins jersey dispute reported by Sports247

THE court has ruled in favour of National Sport Council (NSC) in their dispute with Mesuma Sports Sdn Bhd over the national jersey tiger stripes.
It is believed that the Intellectual Property High Court had concluded yesterday that the three tiger stripes, of which the apparel makers had registered for 10 years – from July 9, 2009 till July 9, 2019 – do not belong exclusively to Mesuma.
However, details of the judgment have yet to be released but sources have mentioned that the court has ordered the cancellation of Mesuma’s design registration.
The matter came to attention when NSC entered into an agreement with Telekom Malaysia (TM) to launch the Team Malaysia Panthera jersey on April 28 last year.
TM had also filed eight applications to register designs consisting of its corporate logo and incorporating the tiger stripes on the words “TEAM MALAYSIA”.
NSC had claimed that it registered the design under the Industrial Designs Act through CR Sports in 2009. CR Sports also filed six applications on May 3 to trademark the striped design.

NSC had claimed the “three-tiger stripe” design belonged to the council as it was a result of a contest in 2005 by the Sports Ministry to design the national jersey and that it was given to NSC by the ministry to be used by the national athletes. NSC had claimed that the design is a national property.


  1. Then whats the point of register if it will go to NSC anyway?
    NSC officials must be sleeping all these while?
    or they DONT KNOW how to register?
    I think these officials wasting taxpayers $$

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.
