On October 9, 2019, we reported that the Commercial Court of the Central Jakarta District Court held hearings on the two lawsuits filed by PT Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia (RCTI). The lawsuits were filed against several broadcasting companies that RCTI accused of violating their copyrights. In the two lawsuits, RCTI demands compensation of close to Rp9 trillion. RCTI failed to get what they wanted, but before RCTI filed the lawsuit, one of the cases had been investigated by the Government. The Government, through Directorate of Investigation and Settlement of Disputes, Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI) at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, apparently had been working on the case since late 2018 and the West Jakarta District Court examines the case. Recently we learned that the court had decided in favor of DJKI.
