1. Intellectual Property Right (IPR) holders merely have to make a complaint of their works being infringed and the rest of the enforcement and investigation is carried out by the enforcement officers of the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs , Police or the Customs and Excise ;
2. The enforcement including the raid , search , seizure and arrest is carried out by the enforcement officers at no cost to the IPR holder ;
3. IPR holders need not engage any lawyers as the prosecution is conducted by the deputy public prosecutors or prosecuting officers of the relevant government enforcement agency ;
4. The enforcement is particularly effective where there are numerous outlets offering or supplying the infringing or counterfeit goods;
5. There is no risk to the IPR holder to pay costs unlike in the event of an unsuccessful civil action.For example in Solid Gold Publishers Sdn Bhd v Chan Wee Ho & Ors  3MLJ , the plaintiff who had instituted a failed civil action , ended up having to pay RM86,651.40 in general damages for the loss of revenue arising from the seizure of 418 video tapes , RM4598 in general damages to replace 48 of the missing tapes and RM50,000 in exemplary damages , interest and cost.
