Meta Believes Indonesian News Content Should Not Be Paid

(CTN News) – As of Thursday, Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, said that it believes the revised Indonesian law does not require Twitter to pay news publishers for content they post voluntarily on its platform voluntarily.

An Indonesian law was signed into law this week by the country’s president, which requires digital platforms to pay media outlets that provide them with content by the end of the year.

During the next six months, it is expected to go into effect.

Meta’s director of public policy for Southeast Asia, Rafael Frankel, said, “Following multiple rounds of consultations with the government, we understood that Meta would not be obligated to pay for news content that publishers voluntarily post to our platforms,”

In order to comply with the law, digital Meta platforms and news publishers must strike partnerships. These partnerships could be in the form of a paid license, revenue sharing or data sharing.

There is, however, a lot that is still unclear about how these agreements will work in practice.

There has long been a concern on the part of governments around the world about what they perceive as a power imbalance between digital platforms and publishers of news and other content that they believe is unfair.

A news media bargaining code was implemented in Australia for the first time in March 2021, becoming the first country in the world to do so. The code went into effect in April 2021.

This has led Meta and Google to reach out to a number of media outlets to offer them compensation for content that generates clicks for their advertising networks and generates revenue for the companies involved.
