  • Internet Regulation. Freedom of Speech

    I am wondering what sort of Internet Regulation and related freedom of speech exists in Indonesia. In the West, there is regulation concerning:

    - "fake news", whatever that is however it may be decided.
    - a link tax and upload filter burden on websites. link tax and upload filter laws ...
    - "hate speech" laws, whatever that is however it may be decided. London police use the rule that truth does not matter, if someone is offended then they will prosecute.

    I know Indonesia has certain interpretations about religious freedom - here I reference the Ahok case, but since I believe religion should be a personal affair, I am not too concerned about this limitation.

    Judging from the three points above, perhaps Indonesia now has more freedom of speech than the West.

    (1) I don't know yet the Regulations , but I have heard of the Indonesian restrictions on :
    - blasphemy
    - insult
    - hate speech
    - income/business tax
    - other illegal subjects (gambling , pornography , ..)

    (2) I guess you mean "in countries of the European Union" , right ?

    (2a) I didn't hear anything about that . As far as I see , most countries (including Indonesia) are not happy with fake news , but what general rule European Union has about it ?

    (2b) The article in the link you provided says : "In one of the dumbest technology regulation moves..." . I don't agree with the word "dumbest" . The idea seems valid in principle , in my view . I don't know if it can be done as proposed .

    (2c) I think many rules can have different interpretations (depending on each case) , but I agree that there should be a rule about it .

    (3) I guess not .

    I like the internet very much , but as many other technologies , it does result in good effects but bad effects too , and so I think it is normal that countries' government create rules to degrease the bad effects .
