Parliament Passed Indonesia’s first Cyberlaw

After more than 8 years, the long-awaited first cyberlaw legislation had finally made its way to the Indonesian legal system. The Indonesian lawmakers had finally given the nod to the law in its plenary meeting in Jakarta on Tuesday, 25th of March 2008. In its original language, the law is entitled ‘Undang-undang Informasi dan Transaksi Elektronik.’ I shall congratulate all parties who had been involved in the making of this law as this piece of legislation is surely becoming an important milestone for the making of the information society in the world’s fourth most populous country.

Soon after the law was passed, I received the final copy of the law from a friend of mine. The same final draft can also be downloaded from the website of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Indonesia.

For the benefit of everyone, I am introducing excerpts of this law in other sections of this blog.

To be continued….
