Indonesian media groups are pushing for a draft regulation to make news aggregators pay publishers for displayed content, a regulation meant to support the domestic news industry. Sources told The Jakarta Post that the new regulation was based on Australia’s News Media Bargaining Code – the first law of its kind in the world – passed in February this year. The law requires aggregators such as Google and Facebook to negotiate fees with publishers.
