TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The regulation overseeing copyright royalty that had just been introduced by the Indonesian government is aimed for third parties using songs and music for commercial uses. The regulation meant to protect creators is now specified under Government Regulation No.56/2021 on managing copyright royalty for songs and/or music.

“Commercial use in this case means when someone profits economically from various sources and pays. This is where the royalty is charged,” said the Director General of Intellectual Property of the Law and Human Rights Ministry, Freddy Harris, in Friday’s virtual press conference.

On March 30, 2021, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo ratified the government regulation (PP) No.56/2021, which was met with great enthusiasm by Indonesian musicians, both seasoned and newcomers.

According to the Freddy, the royalti will be charged from the users of commercial use and will be paid to the creator or copyright holders through the help of the National Collective Management Body (LMKN). 

Freddy believed the pandemic should give opportunities to artists to receive royalty for the commercial use of their work. 

“The most important aspect to note is that this regulation oversees commercial uses [of songs or music that are copyrighted],” said Freddy Harris. 

This PP strengthens the existing Law No.28/2014 on copyrights that guarantees the economic and moral rights of a creator or copyright holder or owner of a song or musical work.
