From 46 Geographical Indications (GIs) that registered in the Directorate General of Intelectual Property, only two known from East Jawa, they are Jawa Ijen Arabica Coffee and Sidoarjo Smoked Bandeng. This number is very small compared with the number of cities in East Jawa with lots of GIs, including high, medium, and low terrains. This condition should be a potential modality toward GIs diversity. According to Law No. 20/2016 of Trademark and GIs, coaching and supervision of GIs is responsibility of local government, alongside the central one. Provincial government or city/sub-province government could be the party to propose the GIs. Therefore, local government is a very important factor in GIs protection. Yet, the concept and mechanism of GIs seems to be not yet understood accurately by the local government, including how the documents managed in the proposal to register. This affected society representative comprehension who has the products. The phase of post-registration of the GIs must be calculated from the outset prior to submitting the registration because if not properly prepared, the registration may be revoked. To achieve the successfulness and sustainability of GIs protection for potential in East Java, it is important to know precisely the unique constraints in each region and the solution to those problems.
