DPR Discusses Broadcasting Bill, YouTubers and TikTokers Must Comply with KPI

One of the main points is the obligation of YouTubers and TikTokers to verify content to KPI

The DPR is discussing the Broadcasting Bill which covers digital platforms such as YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar. One of the main points is the obligation of YouTubers and TikTokers to verify their content with the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI).

This bill defines digital broadcasting platforms as a means of direct interaction between givers and recipients of information. Organizers of this platform, both individuals and institutions, must produce and distribute digital broadcast content according to established standards.

KPI will verify complaints regarding violations of the Broadcasting Code of Conduct (P3) and Broadcast Content Standards (SIS). This verification can involve a panel of experts from academics and the community. Organizers are required to broadcast content according to KPI verification results and comply with the evaluation provided.

Additionally, they must protect copyright, comply with P3 and SIS, and treat content creators fairly. Violations must be corrected immediately with broadcast corrections within 24 hours. They are also required to pay taxes according to the provisions.

With this new regulation, it is hoped that digital content in Indonesia will be more controlled and meet standards, protect public interests and maintain broadcast quality. However, if its implementation is not correct, it could actually hamper the development of the local digital content ecosystem.
