This research is about protection on free-to-air content in Indonesia. The existence of the protection has been debatable. Utilizing of free-to-air content by subscription-based broadcasting institution without consent of the owner is ubiquitous in Indonesia. The owner of the content filed lawsuit to the court and reported them to police institution. Government institutions do not have unanimous view on the protection. This research explores how it is protected through Law Number 28 of 2014 on Copyright and Law Number 32 of 2002 on Broadcasting as well as how it is implemented Indonesia.
