Indonesia revises digital platform laws

 Image result for digital indonesia

Indonesian's parliament passed its Amendment to the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law. This updates the ITE law for the digital environment as follows:

a. A wide definition of Electronic-system organizers is adopted to which the law applies;
b. Electronic information and documents are clearly classified as legal evidence;
c. New privacy rules, for example utilization of personal information through electronic media requires consent. Most of the privacy provisions however require further implementing rules.
d. Additional investigative tools such as disabling access or collection of information and evidence from Electronic-system organizers.

There are also new criminal penalties. Interesting to IP holders will be the offence of "Misleading information which could harm electronic- transaction consumers" which might apply to fake goods sold online.
