On July 2nd, the joint regulation of Minister of Law and Human Rights No. 14 Year 2015, Minister of Communication and Informatics No. 26 Year 2015 on the closure of content of access rights on the violations of copyrights or related items within electronic systems.
Communications Minister Rudiantara revealed that the filmmakers are facing challenges on the copyrights protection, both the Internet piracy or physical piracy, such as CD, VCD and DVD.
"It is also part of the government effort to boost Indonesian creative economy growth, where the movie copyright is one of the focus of the Indonesian Creative Economy Board," mentioned Rudiantara at the press conference of the Ministry of Communication and Informatics, as well as the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, in Jakarta, Tuesday (8/18/2015).
The act of broadcasting movies online (streaming) or illegal downloading are considered to have negative impact on the film industry in Indonesia.
