Indonesia recently passed a new regulation in cyberspace and online activities, the Information and Electronic Transaction Act (Law Number 8, 2008). The law covers jurisdiction, e-contract, privacy, IP rights and criminal liability. However this law has many loopholes and weaknesses -- see for instance the Prita and Ariel cases. Indonesia is also in the process of ratifying the EU Cybercrime Convention for incorporation to the national system, which introduces further changes and potentially controversial obligations.
