Indonesia's New Publication Royalties Rules

Updated: Feb 22

Indonesia has issued a new government decree on Publishing rights and royalties. It is especially targeted at is the interplay between digital platforms and mass media content. The traditional press has complained that their content is reused on digital platforms, leading to advertising revenue falls. Now digital content platforms will need to pay news publishers for distributing their content. Other alternative arrangements are possible including profit sharing, data sharing, or other structures. This will apply for example to Meta, Google and others. The new rules will go into effect in six months so there is a long transition period.
