According to member of the Press Council Agus Sudibyo, the regulation regulates or reduces excessive monopoly on digital platforms, such as search engines. "Many media have collapsed because the current media ecosystem is unfair, non-transparent, and monopolistic, so it needs state intervention in the form of regulations on copyright on journalism," Agus said at the 2021 National Mass Media Convention for National Press Day (HPN), Monday ( 8/2/2021).
Agus said, Indonesia must study the regulations that have been implemented in other countries. In order to create a fair ecosystem, said Agus, the presence of the state is needed to make regulations that are transparent and fair. In addition, creating solidity between media owners or media associations in building negotiations with digital platforms.

Among other things, the issue of monetization and news aggregation without adequate compensation, waiver of journalistic copyright, the closure of the digital platform algorithm system, user data monopoly, content distribution monopoly, and digital advertising monopoly.
