Codeblue Reveals MySj To Get MySejahtera IP And Licensing For RM338.6 Million

Since the revelation made PAC and subsequently by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on the sale of MySejahtera, the single app that has every Malaysian and foreigner in the country, there have been more questions raised despite the clarification given by Health Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin.

Codeblue a non-profit human rights activist especially on matters concerning health published a detailed piece on the MySejahtera dealings since its inception by KPISoft the developer, its shareholders, and subsequent dispute between some of the directors. The information gathered was from court documents filed in November when P2 Asset Management a MySJ shareholder was suing MySejahtera developer Entomo Malaysia (formerly KPISoft) Revolusi Asia (another MySJ Shareholder) and MySJ for alleged breach of contract.

According to P2 Asset Management, the license agreement stated that Entomo Malaysia is to transfer the intellectual property of the MySejahtera mobile app to MySJ and to grant MySJ the license for the software, for which MySJ is to pay Entomo Malaysia RM338.6 million, reported by Boo Su-Lyn the writer who published the piece on Codeblue website.

This payment she added was described as the aggregate fees for the transfer of intellectual property of the app and the licensing fees for the software

The license agreement states that KPISoft is the developer and owner of its proprietary software, the KPISoft software that was used to develop the MySejahtera app for the Malaysian government.

Under the license agreement, KPISoft grants MySJ a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and perpetual license to use the KPISoft software to exclusively develop, own the app trademark for MySejahtera, and test and support the MySejahtera app.

However, under the agreement, MySJ only acquires a license to the KPISoft software specifically for MySejahtera “and does not acquire any other rights or ownership interests.”

KPISoft shall also retain all rights, titles, and interests in and to the KPISoft software, the trademarks, and the services, among others, unless expressly provided otherwise in the agreement.

The scope of services and works for the MySejahtera app for five years and three months under the agreement lasting until December 31, 2025, is as follows, described as “software as a service”

The license agreement requires MySJ to pay KPISoft RM38.6 million for the period from October 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 as transfer of the intellectual property fee and service fee, with annual sums to be paid subsequently, totaling RM338.6 million.

There are proposals to turn MySejahtera into a Superapp, with ewallet, full health data, insurance, e-commerce, and a host of other future applications. The app had already onboarded 1 million businesses in the last 5 months and currently hosts 38 million users.

MySJ was incorporated on September 23, 2020, according to SSM records. MySJ’s board of directors include EcoWorld Malaysia executive chairman Liew Kee Sin and executive director and chief financial officer Heah Kok Boon, former Sapura Energy Bhd CEO Shahril Shamsuddin, Bersatu disciplinary board chairman and non-executive chairman of Sime Darby Plantation Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas, as well as Anuar Rozhan and Raveenderen Ramamoothie. The latter two had founded KPISoft.
